Amateur cartographer Phllip Kearney created a map using US Census Bureau American Community Survey Data that he titled the United States of Apathy. He subtitles his map – “2016 U.S. Presidential election results if abstention from voting was counted as a vote for “Nobody.”  The results, and the lessons that Kearney is teaching us with his detailed map are clear: Vote – if you do not – and there are far too many who do exercise the right to vote (this is not in any way to discount those who are prevented from voting) the results are clear and deeply damaging to our democracy.

Donald Trump – 21 electoral votes Hillary Clinton – 72 electoral votes “Nobody” – 445 electoral vote, winner
