The Non-Metropolitan Hinterland Of America Won The Vote For Donald Trump

by Felix Richter, Statista.com

There exists a correlation between the intensity of economic activity in U.S. counties and it’s inhabitants either voting for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

In the “less-than-500 counties that Hillary Clinton carried nationwide encompassed a massive 64 percent of America’s economic activity as measured by total output in 2015," writes Mark Muro for the Brookings Institute.

By contrast, the more-than-2,600 counties that Donald Trump won generated just 36 percent of the country’s output - just a little more than one-third of the nation’s economic activity."

As our infographic shows, there was a similar tendency in 2000 when Al Gore and George W. Bush were in the race, albeit it wasn't as pronounced as it was in this year's election.

This chart shows the number and combined GDP of counties which either voted Democratic or Republican in the presidential elections in 2000 & 2016
