Map Shows County-by-County Breakdown of Election Results in Missouri
Did you vote in the Presidential Primary Election on March 15? We all know just how close things were in Missouri for both the Democrat and Republican candidates. Now you can see a county-by-county breakdown of the vote from across The Show-Me State.
The New York Times published the map (actually, a couple of different maps that show results for both Democrats and Republicans). There are also versions that show each county across the United States, if you really want to dig deep into election results.

Sanders won over Hillary Clinton 56.2% to 42.5% in Johnson County, and 53.5% to 44.8% in Pettis County.
