I read an article about Trump's historically bad performance in the capitol city of the US. I saw that there were at least two precincts where he did EXTREMELY badly. There were two precincts that I could find where this happened: Precinct 100 (0.8%), and Precinct 125 (0.88%). Each of these precincts had over 1,000 votes cast in this election. This is not about these precincts, but if there are any other precincts where Trump did this badly.

Are there any other precincts with over 250 votes where Donald Trump received less than one percent of the vote?

According to MIT Election Data and Science Lab's U.S. President Precinct-Level Returns 2016 dataset, there were around 580 such precincts (the precise number is difficult to count as some counties seem to report write-ins, etc as separate precincts). For example:

  • Davidson County's 601 precinct in Tennessee gave 1207 votes out of 1277 to Evan McMullin, and none to either Trump or Clinton.
  • Larimer County's 2145235206 precinct in Colorado gave 965 votes out of 1111 to Clinton, and most of the rest to Gary Johnson or Jill Stein.

Here is a summary of the precincts where Trump's vote share was less than 1%, though as I said there may be some mistakes due to how certain types of votes are counted.
