This happened in 2012. Maryland was >60% D, and West Virginia was >60% R. The only prior time this happened in a Presidential election as far as I can tell was 1928, with >60% D Arkansas and >60% R Oklahoma. It also sort of happened in 1948, when some >60% D states in the South bordered >60% Thurmond states. I can't find any other examples.

Edit: Also happened in 1868, when >60% R Tennessee bordered >60% D Georgia and Kentucky. Weird result, that. In 1864, >60% D Kentucky bordered >60% R Missouri and West Virginia.

Just an interesting bit of trivia.
