With the Comey drama in full swing, and the constant swing of foreign policy via tweet, everyone keeps talking about Donald Trump’s ‘base’. And whether it’s abandoning him (seems hopeful). And whether we’re witnessing the start of a new… Flynngate? Comeygate? Zeitgate? Which seems even more hopeful. But I did come across an awesome cartogram from Benjamin Hennig (the man behind worldmapper), which re-illustrated the results of the US 2016 Elections. And it shows you where the base is, in numerical terms.
