This election essentially solidified that Pennsylvania is more Midwestern in character than many want to acknowledge.


as a state the areas west of the eastern seaboard may be more Appalachian then Midwest


PA went red (barely and may have been from more of lack of consistent blue volume then swell of red vote - wonder if some people just stayed aside on the blue leaning element not making a choice), one thing to call out is Philly proper which was dominated by Hillary vote had a lower turnout and produced lower gap or blue count not really more red just fewer Blue votes then expected


PA is two states and always has been, but probably more Appalachian then Midwestern on that regard outside of the population centers

Just looking at the map, Charlotte looks pretty damn divided between city and metro.

Milwaukee metro was maybe the most divided last election. This election:

Washington County 68% Trump
Milwaukee County 29% Trump

New York metro, Trump's best and worst counties were both within New York City

Bronx: 9.6% [Manhattan 10%]
Staten Island: 57%

southern Staten Island averaged 75% Trump

Maybe some of your so called "metros" do not extend past the county line and if you are driving past corn and soybean fields or cow pastures as soon as you pass the county line that would explain why those areas went red.

Montgomery County (Ohio) where Dayton is went red, the country people on the west side turned out in larger numbers than the city people did.

"Clinton" County in Ohio also went red.

Miami was pretty divided a lot of Cubans and other Latinos voted Blue and younger Latinos voted Red. Trump dominated the rural parts of Florida and won some of the Latinos vote.

Here is a detailed map of Erie County, one of the few counties in Upstate New York that went for Hillary:

Philadelphia and the surrounding area went mostly blue, with only a handful of the surrounding counties going red.

Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Chester, New Castle, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland and Atlantic Counties went Blue.

Berks, Kent, Cecil, Gloucester, Salem and Cape May counties went red.
Erie and Luzerne Counties in PA went red for the first time in ages this year. Not that shocking though.
