There appear to be 6 or 7 regions of Democrats in Idaho. Do these correspond to urban centers (or is the rest of the state not that populated in general)?

It maps to the urban centers definitely. There is an even stronger correlation to cities with colleges (those bastions of liberalism). Well, except BYU Rexburg.

If you look closely you will see the largest clusters are around Boise (state capital/BSU), Pocatello (ISU), Moscow (UofI) and also Blaine County (Sun Valley/Heinz Headquarters).
