I'm sure it reflects timing but does pose some interesting thoughts.
Would you vote for a person who built an orphanage but ran over your dog?
Would you vote for a person who is promising to build an orphanage but ran over your dog?
Would the circumstances of running over the dog make a difference?

A lot of people are kind of unaware of this, but the entire world is actually getting its shit together.

Maybe it's because so many are dying there's more to go around.

That's the kind of statistic that seems poignant but actually tells you nothing. People live in cities. Counties are different geographical sizes. Metropolitan areas can be divided into counties differently.

I think LA is fortunate that it is all one county.

The DC metro area is split up between several counties in two states and a district and the Federal government has some jurisdiction over it too. Makes coordinating something regional, like the Metro for example, extremely difficult.

Each individual state in blue. Not all the states in blue.

But it is interesting that NJ, for example, has a smaller population than LA. NJ has some large areas of dense population. CT and MA too. That's kind of surprising.

Adjusted for inflation of course, and at the peak of the Tulip craze.
