Wyoming Politics: The Reddest and Bluest Counties in the Cowboy State
Here we go again. Silly season is officially underway. As Wyoming voters gear up for another Presidential election, here's a look at the reddest and bluest counties in the Cowboy State.
According to Wall Street 24/7, the region with the most Republican voters in Wyoming is Crook County. Located in the northeastern corner of the state, Crook County is home to the Devils Tower National Monument. With a population of just over 7,000, it's the third smallest county in Wyoming.
It's also the reddest county in one of the country's reddest states. In the 2012 election, Republican nominee Mitt Romney won 85% of all votes cast in the county. 69% of voters supported Romney statewide, the second highest margin in the nation.
As for Wyoming's bluest county? It's also Wyoming's only blue county. Nearly 55% of Teton County residents voted for Barrack Obama in 2012. However, the county hasn't voted a Democratic candidate to state office in nearly two decades.
