Just found an interesting, informative link to a New York Times map of how Donald Trump won this General Election 2016.  Here’s the link below.  You can click on the states or the listing of the states below to see the exact popular vote count for all the counties, plus percentage breakdowns and colorized maps (red to blue).

I checked my home state of Hawaii and it’s totally blue, “much more Democratic”.

Arizona on the other hand, is considered “somewhat more Republican” and they had this analysis:

“Race Preview: Democrats believe they have a chance of winning Arizona’s 11 electoral votes for the first time since Bill Clinton carried the state in 1996, but polls show the race leaning in Mr. Trump’s favor. Mitt Romney won Arizona in 2012 by 9 percentage points.”

Trump won Arizona by 4.1 % according to the New York Times.  Arizona Secretary of State website is reporting more votes: http://results.arizona.vote/2016/General/n1591/Results-State.html, with Trump only winning by 3.95%, but provisional ballots are still being counted (as far as I know).

And the maps also show how Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party’s Jill Stein did overall, as well.

Note that the most Democratic place (not a state) is the District of Columbia, where the nation’s capital is, voting almost 93% for Hillary Clinton. They have a very Democratic past as well:

“Race Preview: The nation’s capital has awarded its three electoral votes to the Democratic candidate in every presidential election since it gained the right to vote for president in 1961. Barack Obama won District of Columbia in 2012 by 83.6 percentage points.”
