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.

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.

But I can think of ways to retaliate.

Knowing you, we're sure you can.

But hopefully cooler heads will dissuade you from vandalizing synagogues.

I like Arkansas in the white color. Its totally in the political center! That may change a little over the next 4 years though!

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.
