Hawai'i's Senate doesn't have a single Republican (single-party state) and every Republican in their House chamber is in a district won by Hillary.

Connecticut has two GOP counties - Litchfield and Windham

What is interesting about Essex County VT might be the lack of population in it. Per the numbers, there's less than 3,000 people in this county. This might be the least populous county east of the Mississippi River.

Most states have very conservative and very liberal areas, except for the New England states. The New England states are almost entirely blue counties, and the red counties are not that red.

With changing demographics, the state is getting more Democratic and liberal, but it won't affect elections to a large degree until voter turnout improves substantially.
Republicans should be getting nervous about whether Texas will lean Democrat in the next few decades. You have a lot of people from Detriot and Chicago who are Democrat that have been moving down there since most northern states offer less job opportunities than states down south.

From 2012 to 2016, six states went 'bluer' than in 2012. Texas was one of them. So was Arizona. That said, you can make the case that Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota will become more red. What you see in the future, regrettably, is an ever sharpening political race and ethnicity war.

I dunno a single person from Detroit. I know a few from Chicago but not too many. Most Midwesterners that move here come from Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska which are more moderately conservative if anything. The liberal transplants mostly come from California and New York and the amount that come in is overstated. I don't see Texas becoming blue within my lifetime to be honest. Its too large and dynamic and its rural population does not sit backseat to its urban population like in other smaller states.

This will depend on how the Hispanic population ends up breaking in the long term. If that bloc votes 67-70% Democratic, then it will most certainly become blue since the NHW population there declines by about a half % point each year. I doubt Texas will be competitive by 2024, but I could see things becoming dicey by 2028 depending on how hostile the GOP becomes to Latinos.

Fort Worth is MODERATE in a red county.
