Were there any surprising county results in 2012?

In hindsight, it is pretty surprising that Elliott stuck with Obama even as the rest of Appalachia fell to Romney.

Lake and Peninsula Borough, AK (and the number of McCain 2008/Obama 2012 boroughs in AK in general)

At the time I remember being surprised that Obama managed to carry several of the big suburban Bush - Obama '08 counties against Romney (Loudoun, DuPage, Ventura, Jefferson, CO).

In hindsight though, it is a bit shocking that Obama did so well in Ohio given what happened in 2016. So because of that, I'll say Trumbull, OH because it swung toward Obama and then promptly shifted heavily toward Trump.

Not a single county, but Obama's performance in southern and south east ohio. He improved on his 2008 margins all over the region.

Given how strongly Appalachia swung against him, why did this particular region swing towards him? Ross County swung 6 points towards him.

This. I remember MDC turnout was surprisingly massive in 2012.

The general fact that Ohio had a huge cluster of D trending Counties in the South-Central area of the state that just entirely stopped at the Kentucky border, and then Kentucky also had a huge cluster of D trending Counties in the North-Central area of the state that just entirely stopped at the Indiana border.

Well, I know that it has been days. But I guess 2012 election remains to be one of the best! Some may not agree with me, but that's according to my own perception.

If I remember correctly, Obama actually underperformed his polling in Ohio, where he had a fairly narrow but consistent lead.

Obama's strong performance in a lot of declining ex-industrial communities isn't too surprising if you remember that Obama's 2012 campaign ran to the left on economic issues, smearing Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital, opposition to the auto bailout, etc.

Maybe I was gullible, but I thought Romney would have narrowly won Hamilton County, OH.

 think he underperformed expectations in Oho but not polling

Probably Chester, PA. It was only 529 votes though.
