Democrats (and pollsters) predicted a mighty gust blowing the country left this year, in response to the rightward gale that swept President Trump into office. Instead of a corresponding tempest, however, the country barely puffed just enough in a few places to lift Joe Biden over the top.

Compared to this year, the 2016 map portrays a blizzard blowing right for Trump across the country. Even areas that voted for Hillary Clinton gave her much less support than Barack Obama had received.
