Two Solitudes: Unique election map describes U.S.

The New York Times shows that two solitudes make up the US.  Counties that went for Hillary are shown as bodies of water on the Republican map and counties that went for Trump are shown as bodies of water on the Democrat map.  The "Santa Fe Sea" on Trump's map is "Albuquerque Island" on Hillary's map.

The Democrats map is an island archipelago.  The Republican map is continental. The populations, though similar, are divided by culture.   "Two Solitudes"  The new president is from the archipelago. The mainland voted him in.
