Population density may have been the key to Trump losing Maryland


We’re less than a week past the election, yet the counting continues.

Eighteen states were still working through their tabulations as of Thursday, and several news organizations still consider the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be too close to call in Michigan and New Hampshire.

But we know the winner, of course. Trump carried (or is leading in) 30 of the 50 states, pushing him past the Electoral College’s threshold of 270 electoral votes. Some estimates have him ending up with as many as 306 electoral votes. Clinton, the prohibitive favorite prior to election day, won only 20 states and the District of Columbia.

The states carried by the Republican ticket have a collective population of 181 million, compared to 140 million in states that favored Clinton. The disparity is even greater in terms of land area. Trump’s states sprawl across 2.5 million square miles, while Clinton’s states cover about a third of that land area, some 960,000 square miles in all.

Maryland, which heavily favored Clinton, ranked sixth among all states that went blue, with a density of 618.8 residents per square mile.

"In fact, when extending that analysis to all of the voting areas where at least 34 percent of adults hold a bachelor's degree, some 14 states in all, Clinton had a clean sweep."

So now it is clear why BO, HilLiary, and all the rest of the Democrats are pushing for free college. That way they can get all of the younger population indoctrinated into their liberal progressive socialist bunk.
