FiveThirtyEight plots urban political segregation

FiveThirtyEight's Rachael Dottle has just launched a visualization-driven story that reveals the most politically segregated cities in the United States. Much has been written about the increasing rural-urban divide, but not enough attention has been given to more localized divisions within those areas.

The entire project is worth your time, and a good example of how to integrate words and visuals. I particularly liked the small multiple maps, and the scatter plot comparing political and racial segregation.
