ELECTION 2016 RESULTS BY COUNTIES


Politifact publication dated December 4, 2016, shows the breakdown in counties won by each party’s nominee going back to 1984, which was Reagan’s last election as well as the one in which he won every state except one (Minnesota). Two housekeeping notes: The data for 2016 is preliminary, and Alaska doesn’t calculate vote data by borough, which is that state’s equivalent of a county.

If these findings by Politifack are true, why does the system continue to honored or entertained these self interest groups with personal agendas that are only glorified by main stream media.
