Interesting map.

Many are often baffled at how poorly La Follette did in Michigan compared to his neighbouring home state of Wisconsin, but the map sort of explains it. If we divide Michigan into the two peninsulas, we see that La Follette received only 9.70 percent in the 68 Lower Peninsula counties, but 21.74 percent in the fifteen Upper Peninsula counties.
