Kerry won 583 counties in 2004 and in a tied election, would have won probably about 700. Even George McGovern, in a tied election, would have won about 845 counties. Discuss.

Edited to fix an obvious typo in the year.

People, not counties, comprise the electorate.

Republicans win more counties but Democrats win the more populous counties.

For instance, Democrats can win the entire state of Illinois just by running up their margins in Cook County. The Republicans can win every other county.
