1. The county colors, without population weightings, are very misleading.

Especially in Virginia

2. How is it misleading to compare a county that's blue tonight and was pink or red in 2016?

4. In Virginia, which is trending towards blue, the county maps are still so red. Yes, you

can see some shifts, in your comparison - it just happens to annoy me to see the maps of Virginia with 3 little blue areas and 90'+ the rest of the map.

3. even my blood-red county has turned slightly pinkish

There may be some closet Democrats in my area.

5. This is why we continue to fight in my very red FL county

Democratic votes are Democratic votes - in state and national elections. We may fail locally much of the time, but we can help win state races.
