Atlas of the Week: Election 2020 Results

Figure 1: 2020 Election Results By County (Bump, “Let’s Get Ahead of It: A Map of the Early 2020 Results by Population, Not Acreage”)

This atlas is a map that shows the 2020 election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. I chose this for two reasons: (1) It utilizes the special benefits of a classic map visualization while trying to convey a greater statistical representation of the election results. By doing so, it effectively communicates the rhetorical weight of cartography on the election without distorting the representation of the populous vote. (2) This map is directly correlated to my blog post by showing an alternative solution to some of the issues brought up in my analysis, in which there is a lesser emphasis placed on acreage portrayal.
