Which states did Trump do best in, compared to 2012

The 10 states Trump did best in, relative to 2012 were:

  1. Iowa – went from -6% margin to +10% = 16% net gain
  2. West Virginia +16%
  3. South Dakota +12%
  4. Maine +12%
  5. Rhode Island +12%
  6. Ohio +11%
  7. Hawaii +11%
  8. Indiana +10%
  9. Michigan +9%
  10. Missouri +9%

So huge increases in Iowa, West Virginia, South Dakota which might be expected. But also picked up support in Maine and Rhode Island in liberal New England.

The 10 states he performed worse in, margin relative to Romney were:

  1. Utah -22%
  2. California -7%
  3. Texas -7%
  4. Arizona -6%
  5. DC – 4%
  6. Massachusetts -4%
  7. Washington -3%
  8. Georgia -2%
  9. Virginia -2%
  10. Kansas -1%

Those 10 are the only ones where he did worse than Romney.  Utah is due to vote splitting. California is no surprise. Texas and Arizona will probably be the high Hispanic population,but of course overall he did better with Hispanics so maybe not.
