Found it interesting in light of it being in the news. Trump got only 13%, the worst performance by a Republican since 1912, and 9% worse than Romney. Though it's been on a rapid decline - from R-leaning in the 50s and 60s, to voting in the 40%s from 1976 to 1988, 30%s from 1992 to 2000, then 20%s from 2004 to 2012.

(Not saying that this really tells us anything about the white supremacist rally).

Because it's interesting, and this is a forum about political data?

Trump has made a habit of raising a middle digit to reality, turning that middle digit into a knife, and stabbing reality through the heart.

It is possible that the Charlottesville rally was very partially related to this trend. Neo-Nazis probably aren't reading up on election statistics, but the D-trend was possibly noticeable in subtle ways, and maybe they were in some way reacting to the increasingly liberal community.

But it could also just be a total coincidence.

Oh wow. I am surprised the third party votes here didn't defect from Hillary. Seems like it was the Republicans that fled from Trump. I expected a lot of #NeverHillary protest votes in a college town.

A lot college towns held steady or even expanded their Democratic vote share compared to 2012. Athens-Clarke is a good example of this; she managed to even top Obama's 08 performance.

To some extent, Griffin was in many ways elected as a War time President because he viewed, not as the guy you want a beer with, but the guy you would go to a bar fight with.
