Looks kind of like the 1992-2016 trend map.

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?

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.
