It looks like Republicans lost ground in Eastern Kentucky too

In the NY Times county map, it looks like Dems won some counties in eastern KY with 20 pt swings. My impression is that these are your blue collar white counties. I know MSNBC has been focusing on the suburban counties, but I am wondering if there is some blue-collar counties that have traditionally been Democratic are coming back to the fold.

1. They've never left.

When they cheat, they win. We've been voting, they've been robbing us since Al Gore.

4. My home county went 70% plus for Trump

They went 70% plus for Beshear. A poor county that has suffered under Bevin. Counting then as Democratic voters is a mistake in my opinion. For most there, this was a "not Bevin" vote. It will take considerable work to turn them.
