North Carolina presidential race:
Axiom, in collaboration with Remington Research Group, analyzed individual county election results dating back to 2000 in order to select areas that best fit our criteria. The search began by identifying counties that had correctly predicted the statewide result in each of the last four presidential elections. We then chose the counties that consistently matched the overall statewide result within a few percentage points. At the time, seven counties that reside in seven battleground states fit our criteria and were selected to be Axiom’s Battleground Counties.
Hillary Clinton: 44%
Donald Trump: 47%
