How do you think Hillary's general-election performance would have compared to Obama's, state by state, had she won the nomination? It goes without saying that we have no way of knowing how the campaign would have gone differently; but we can make some educated guesses. Mine:



Blue = higher percentage for Clinton, red = higher percentage for Obama

Hillary would have done a lot better in the Pittsburgh metro than Obama...

I mostly agree with your map. I would definitely change New Jersey though. I would strongly consider changing Pennsylvania as well.

I also find the one CD in Maine to be mildly curious, but I don't know a lot about it.

meh, they would have done about the same in SE PA, IMO. But I don't really have anything to back that up other than my gut instinct so you may be right

ME-02 is a rural, very white, more communitarian (i.e. some degree of social conservativsm) leaning district that would've probably preferred Clinton to Obama.
