14. I wouldn't be surprised to see

MT go blue this time around, especially if Hillary campaigns there. That may be true for WY as well because the demographics and voting mentalities are similar, except that WY has a smaller percentage of Native Americans in its population.

I know that there aren't that many electoral votes in either state, but it's the principle and if Clinton-Kaine run a 50-state campaign as they say they will, we may be able to knock off MT's Rep Zinke (a dolt). Denise Juneau is running a good campaign against him and the Native American vote (the largest minority at just under 7%) will be out in full force to support her (in MT, they're "Blue" voters, as a rule!). Hopefully, Bullock also retains the gubernatorial seat there.

Trump-Pence epitomize too much hate and bad behavior for most Montanans I know (of both parties) and women especially are turned off by that ticket. Many of those who might have voted GOP this time around will vote for Gary Johnson (there are still RON Paul signs standing in some areas of the state, LOL). Others will either not vote or - very quietly and without fanfare - support the Dem ticket. There will be the stalwart RW nutcases who will support Trump-Pence no matter what, but ....
