An analysis performed by Joseph Keefer shows that Roy Cooper won the Governor's mansion by handily winning the state's most populous counties.
Keefer calculated that Cooper defeated incumbent Pat McCrory a combined 63 to 37 percentage in Wake, Mecklenburg, Guilford, Forsyth, Cumberland, Durham and Buncombe counties.
In the remaining 93 counties, McCrory defeated Cooper by a combined 58 percent to 42 percent. Keefer told the Raleigh News and Observer that his findings indicate a “mega-counties versus the rest of the state” dynamic instead of the conventional traditional urban/rural divide. 
The N&O reports Keefer is a communications professor and former journalist.
