The geographically accurate cartogram above represents the Virginia governor's race results based on the population of each county.  The more populous a county is, the larger it is on the map.  Looking at a map of Virginia with the results of this race, the entire state is painted red leading the casual observer to believe that the Republican candidate, Ed Gillespie, won the race.  However, the map above shows that those small pockets of blue are very populous and what they lack in geography they more than make up for in votes and it gives a better picture as to how the Democratic candidate, Ralph Northam, won the race.
