Using the results of the last 4 presidential elections, last 4 Senatorial elections, and last 4 Gubernatorial elections in each state.  Color shading is based off of % of elections won.

Democrats won every statewide elections in Washington, Delaware, and (of course) D.C.  Republicans did this in Utah, Idaho, and Texas.

Funny how we Democrats talk a lot about Texas, but have had literally zero sucess there in the past decade.  Its also interesting to see a lot of states we think of as solidly blue/red, not being that way if we include Senate and Governor elections.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

The pattern is actually a lot more neat, than I would have imagined.
WV and Montana being the chief exceptions.

Very true.  It's why I would argue that there's really no such thing as a solidly red or blue state.

When it comes to grubantorial races, absolutely. That's why I wouldn't advise including just races to measure a state's partisanship, fwiw.

I sure don't because the evidence I've seen suggests that you can't.

7/5 states.   Each state has 12 races included total, so 7/5 is the closest they can be without a tie. The exception is states like Maine, where independents have been elected.  The D/R ration is still close to 7/5 though, so thats what I used.
