The Urban Candidate 2012 – post-election update

November 7, 2012

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post on “The Urban Candidate(s)?” asking the questions: Who is the urban candidate? (Both.) And what are they saying about the urban? (Not so much.) I included a map overlaying Election 2008 counties on U.S. Census urbanized areas.

The day after Election Day 2012, I congratulate President Obama on a decisive win. And I update the election counties / urban areas map with a new one for Election 2012. Here it is:

Map showing Obama 2012 counties in blue (as of 2pm, Wed, Nov 7) overlaid on U.S. Census 2010 “urban areas.” Overlay map based on election map by Washington Post and urbanized areas and urban clusters map by U.S. Census

* Apologies to residents of Hawaii (especially Hawaii, because you gave us Obama) and Alaska for leaving you off of this map.
