Post the best, the most beautiful, the most interesting, the most impressive of Atlas' maps here. I love looking through old threads with lots of nice maps, so I figured we should have a gallery for the best of the best.

The first one in deserves to be one of Hashemite's, of course:

Of course, these are primaries, right?

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

Some of them are, but they certainly don't have to be.

I went back over and labeled the ones that don't have a title or a key within the map itself.

That giant clump of 90% Obama precincts in South Chicago is pretty great.

It is, of course, entirely fitting that the creator of this thread would also be the creator of many of Atlas's most impressive, most intricate, and most beautiful maps.

This is a great thread.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Random coincidence.

I made a map of a French election once, but I doubt it still exists - like all inspired things, destroyed by the march of human edification.  If this little work of mine still lingers in some dark corner, please do not repost it here for fear of repercussions.  However, if any of you remember, you could send me a private message about it.  I'd like to gaze fondly at it again.

I wonder what the border between those 70-80% Meek districts and the 70-80% Rubio districts to the west of them is like.

Look closer.  The river only forms a small part of the border Lief is talking about.

Kay, further north it's the railways along the Miami-Hialeah city line. And Rubio seems to have done better than a generic R among the Non-Cuban Hispanics.
