Clinton captured the largest metros. She bested Trump with 55 percent compared to 40 percent of the vote in metros with more than one million people, and won eight of the ten largest metros. These metros accounted for more than half the vote and generate two-thirds of America’s economic output.

    "These metros accounted for more than half the vote and generate two-thirds of America’s economic output."

    Note that 20% of the GDP in the US is government and finance- which produce nothing and/or stifle productivity. Much of government and finance is in those big cities. Large cities are often headquarters for the largest companies. Does that overly weight the economic output of large cities?
    The 2/3 of economic output figure is rubbish, imo.

    Well the demo's have been stuffing the cities with the poor and illegal immigrants for many, many years.
    I remember when that started here in the east.

    Research shows that Cities create entitled and dependent populations or to be more specific...demoncraps
