Dallas, Texas: r r D D D

How It Works:
Here at BestPlaces, we were looking at the voting patterns since the 2000 election and realized that we could express the results of each election as one letter. R if the Republican Party candidate won, D if the Democratic Party candidate won and I if the Independent Party candidate won. The five elections (2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016) would be expressed as five-letter word (R R D R R).

Then we went a little further and added the dimension of magnitude. If the difference of victory was greater than 10 percent, the letter is upper case, and lower case if the difference was less than 10 percent. This allows us to see interesting voting patterns at just a glance.

Here’s the VoteWord for Iowa – d r d d r. In the last five elections the state has been closely contested, voting narrowly for the Republican Party candidate in 2016 after voting for the Democratic Party in 2008 and 2012. Virginia (r r d d d) has voted narrowly for the Democratic Party in the last three elections.
