For John, BLUF: Graphics help us understand statistics. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is a map that focuses on the areas where Mrs Hillary Clinton did very well in the November election.
And here is a look at employment gains, October 2015 to October 2016. It appears that the areas where Mrs Clinton did well are the places where employment is up over the last year.
Is there a correlation here?
Did voters respond to better economic conditions by voting for a continuation of President Obama's policies by voting for Mrs Clinton?
Not a perfect correlation, but indications.
