Moore County sees red, votes overwhelmingly for Trump
More than 1.5 million voters cast their ballots in favor of Trump, or 61 percent, compared with about 866,000 for Democrat Hillary Clinton, or 35 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson received 2 percent of the state vote.
Trump won 91 of the state’s 95 counties — including Moore County — earning more than three-quarters of the vote in 47 of them. His highest winning percentage was in Wayne County on the Alabama border, where he won 86 percent to Clinton’s 12 percent.
Clinton won more than 60 percent of the vote in Davidson (Nashville) and Shelby (Memphis) counties; she also more narrowly won Haywood and Hardeman counties in western Tennessee.
In southern Middle Tennessee it was a Trump runaway.
In Moore County, 2,325 votes (79.9 percent) were cast for Trump, compared to 496 (17 percent) for Clinton.
