This last year, probably the closeness of  Yuma Co., Arizona.

Overall: San Francisco going for Al Smith, despite Hoover being a Bay Area namesake and thus taking the other 9 counties comfortably. The other remaining Smith counties were Dixie North counties.
Esmeralda County, NV, which voted for Bush over Perot in 1992 by a single vote.
Also Lapeer County, MI, which Bush carried in 1992 with just 35% of the vote.
Marquette County, MI (in the UP) went Ford '76 - Carter '80 - Reagan '84 -- each time by less than 1 percentage point.
