p

ates are arranged by region — South, Northeast, Midwest and West. For each state, we show the percent of vote in rural, exurban and urban counties for each candidate. And we show the total percent of vote for each of these geographic designations. Finally, we tally the states by region, to show how each candidate did in a broad, geographic area.
