Now that the election is over, let's take a look at the different parts of the country where each candidate won. Based on these two "new Americas", if we examine the latest American Community Survey data from 2010, we can see slight differences in particular demographics, such as education level, race and occupation. One of the most interesting results from this exercise is that in both Americas, government workers make up the same share of the working population.
