A few observations:

1.) In all three cases, West Virginia was the state with the strongest Republican trend. From 1988-2016, WV trended 56 points Republican!
2.) In all three cases, South Carolina was the state with the smallest trend in either direction. It is eerily accurate in terms of how it captures the natural trend.
3.) Here are all the states that have trended Democratic in all three cases: California, Washington, Utah, Arizona, Massachusetts, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia. (8 states) No surprises here, except maybe Washington.
4.) All the states that have trended Republican in all three cases: Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Rhode Island (18 states) Rhode Island, Alabama and Kansas are probably the most surprising.

Nice work. I'm surprised about Texas. There is a lot of talk about Texas slowly shifting towards the Democrats because of a high minority population, but I don't see it here. Is there something I'm missing?

Yeah, you only paid attention to the first map. Tongue

Texas has been Dem trend 2000 onwards.

Texas has trended D three out of the past four elections (exception: 2012). Florida has trended R three out of the past four elections (exception: 2012).

Lloyd Bentsen was on the Democratic ticket in 1988.

But the growing minority population has been a constant thing from before the 2000s, no?

Lloyd Bentsen was on the Democratic ticket in 1988.

But George Bush was also on the Republican ticket.

It seems that Texas trended Republican from Carter's win there in 1976 to 2000 due to Southerners leaving the Democrat party, but is now going in the Democratic direction since 2000 due to minority growth and urban growth.

I love how New Hampshire is in the top 5 of states with the strongest D trend. And yet people here think it will trend Republican in the future for some strange reasons...

Reversion to the mean ?

-Uh, Florida's in the top 10. Don't use spurious reasoning; NH has had a GOP trend in three out of the past three presidential elections, and four out of the past five. Most of its Dem trend since 1988 was due to the 1992 GOP bloodbath and WJC's 1996 consolidation of his 1992 gains in the Northeast.
