How Donald Trump dominated Appalachia, in 1 startling map

As if the election results weren't enough proof that Donald Trump absolutely dominated Appalachia, this map offers a pretty good picture of just how widespread the presumptive GOP nominee's support is in the region:

All those highlighted areas that take up pretty much the entire map? That's where Trump won. The region fits the demographic Trump does best with to a T: mostly white, predominately working class, and, largely, not college-educated. While Hillary Clinton once promised to shut down coal mines, Trump has accepted a hard hat from a group of coal workers and promised the region will soon "be back to better than ever before."

Clinton lost every single county in Tuesday's West Virginia primary. Suffice it to say, she has a lot of catching up to do.
