Where did you get that data? I would expect it to be opposite. Older Cubans are much more likely to vote for Republicans and younger ones are more likely to vote Democrat. Cubans used to be one of the most reliable Republican voting blocks but that reliability is eroding away with each presidential cycle as the older Cuban-Americans pass away. All said and done, Clinton won MiamiDade County with nearly 64% of the vote. Even its native born Cuban American son, Marco Rubio, lost MiamiDade County.

This is the first election where all the major counties of the Atlanta metro turned blue. Really just the exurbs remain red, but they contain no more than 500k-600k people.

That's incredible. Atlanta's suburban counties tend to lean bright pink. That shows how pronounced the educational divide has become in America has become.

So NYC metro counties were redder than the Atlanta metro counties. But does Atlanta have any counties that are mostly white?

Cobb and Gwinnett Counties have been steadily getting more diverse over time, particularly due to the growing Hispanic and Asian populations. I wonder how much of the shift had to do with their "browning" versus many traditionally Republican educated whites voting for Hillary (or just not voting at all).

Romney won Cobb County by a 13 point margin in 2012. Clinton won the county by a 2 point margin in 2016, representing a 15 point swing. Cobb went from being 63.7% Non-Hispanic White in 2010 to 61.6% White in 2015. The Black population increased from 12.6% to 13.3% during that time and the Hispanic population increased from 16.3 % to 17.6%.

There's no way a swing that large occurred without Clinton peeling off a lot of ex-Romney supporters.

None of the core counties in metro Atlanta are, but other counties in the metro are like that. Cherokee County is 87% White, Forsyth County is 85% White, Bartow County is 83% White, etc.
