The chart above shows the average % change in housing prices in the US by county today vs that in 2000 according to a Harvard study. The following maps show the results of the 2008 and 2016 election by county. Could this be yet another basic concept showing why the US voted the way they did last election?
2008 – a hope for change
2016 – the last 8 years didn’t help – time to vote for wholesale change
Feel free to draw your own conclusions. These three maps to me voice the disgruntled who remain destitute after all this time.
