A great map

Remember (if you saw it) Colbert fretting over the election map and wondering why we didn't elect the president "based on square footage?" Looking at this map, that seems a fair question.

This map shows a different take (source: http://io9.com/5960484/this-is-most-accurate-political-election-map-weve-seen-yet - there are some very high-res versions available there, too). The darker the color, the more votes were cast, meaning you can see population here. Look how empty the middle of the country is. (Alaska's county results weren't in, but it would be mostly white, too.)
