I’ve wondered this: in which states did Trump get more votes in the primaries than Clinton? In which states did Republicans get more primary votes this year than Democrats? Here are the answers (red: Trump won more primary votes than Clinton and Republicans got more primary votes than Democrats, blue: Clinton got more primary votes than Trump and Democrats got more primary votes than Republicans, purple: Clinton got more primary votes than Trump and Republicans got more primary votes than Democrats, teal: Trump got more primary votes than Clinton and Democrats got more primary votes than Republicans). The popular vote results for Maine and Nevada aren’t released; it is presumed more Democrats voted for Clinton than Republicans did for Trump in both.
Here’s the actual redness and blueness of general election states this year (red: Rmoney won, dark red: Trump needs to win to get anywhere, blue: $hillary easily wins, purple: any one of these is both necessary and sufficient for Trump to win the general, presuming Trump wins the three in dark red):
BTW, unlike this year, eight years ago, John McSame won far fewer primary votes in Ohio and New Hampshire than did Barack Obama, who lost both states in the primaries.
Again, Trump’s best bet this year is to donate 4% of his money to the Green Party. Jill Stein 2016!
