Sanders is counted as a Democrat.

Red = Obama overperformed Democratic Senate candidate
Blue = Democratic Senate candidate overperformed Obama
Green = Both (or neither) major-party candidates outperformed Obama and Romney
Gray = no Senate election

Hatch was the only incumbent who underperformed their party's nominee (Feinstein and her opponent both outperformed Obama/Romney and Cardin and his opponent both underperformed Obama/Romney).

Comments? Somewhat deceptive with more Democratic incumbents up, both it appears Dems had stronger Senate nominees.

I am greatly surprised that no one ever responded to this, but in light of what has happened since, particularly with 2018, I would like to bump this forward. Some of the overperformances on the map were extraordinary, particularly in hindsight. The most startling example is West Virginia, where Manchin got 61% compared to 35% for Obama. North Dakota (Heitkamp 50%; Obama 39%), Missouri (McCaskill 55%; Obama 44%), Florida (Nelson 55%: Obama 50%), and Indiana (Donnelly 50%; Obama 44%) are other notable ones, as are New York (Gillibrand 72%; Obama 63%) and Minnesota (Klobuchar 65%; Obama 53%).

Interesting map. In the House, Obama outperformed Dems by 2%, but slightly underperformed the House PV in 2008.

It's noteworthy that Trump underperformed almost all GOP senate candidates in 2016.

One exception was in Missouri, where Trump did way better than Roy Blunt.
