Perot helped, of course... But yeah, the traditionally Democratic areas in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho massively trended R in 2000. The 5th briefly showed us its old voting patterns again in 2006, with Cantwell winning Asotin and Spokane (Spokane is most of the district) and almost winning Pend Oreille. She also won Whitman, but that's a more recent trend to the Democrats.

Wow ! Smiley

So Clinton carried one of the two eastern districts ? It's incredible to see how things have changed in just 12 years...

Indeed, and it almost went to Dukakis back in 1988 as well.  Wink

The Midwest, 1980



That's great ! Thank you ! Smiley

It's also interesting to see how much more CDs this region had at the time... 121 in the 1970s, just 94 since 2010. Ohio lost 7, IL 6 and MI 5.

Also, with the 1996 Texas map it almost looks like Clinton and Dole won the same number of districts. What it the exact tally ?

Why did the cities swung to Carter in 1980? Is it just a matter of black voting patterns becoming more solidly Democratic or was there something about Reagan that turned off city dwellers?

Texas, 1996



Clinton lost the Texarkana district?!

16 for Clinton, and 14 for Dole.  Smiley

Both, a lot of African Americans were really turned off by Reagan for his perceived hardcore conservatism on social and economic issues.  Not that Republicans were doin well with black voters anyways, but that's one of the reasons that so many city districts swung (and in some cases) flipped to Carter.  Latte liberals also felt more at home with Carter, which helped as well.

Clinton lost the Texarkana district?!

Yes, but only by a single percentage point.  Wink

You can kinda tell that number is misleading by the fact that Clinton won 4 districts with <50% of the vote, while Dole only won one that narrowly.

That is kind of the point of a gerrymander though.  Wink
