148     3,901   7,365   34.24%  64.64%
149     2,079   5,523   27.04%  71.84%

Percentages don’t add up to 100 because of the other candidates, whose totals I didn’t show. I’ve said before that races that aren’t close seldom offer interesting precinct data. That’s the case here, where Hillary Clinton took over 70% of the vote in Harris County. There was some variation – as has been the case around the country, Clinton dominated in the predominantly African-American districts, while Sanders’ six best districts were all Republican-held, and no coincidentally predominantly Anglo. Beyond that, there’s not a whole lot to say. Clinton lost the county in 2008, though she did do well in Anglo and Latino districts (apologies for the formatting on that one; I was still using Movable Type back then, and the code apparently didn’t port that well to WordPress). Different year, different result. I’ll look at the Republican Presidential primary tomorrow.

    Charles, where did you get your precinct level info? I couldn’t find in the Harris County Clerk’s website. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. Brad – The County Clerk’s office provides these reports. Usually, they get sent to me as part of the normal course of events, but sometimes they don’t. In those cases (and this election was one) I almost always know someone who has gotten the files, and they share it with me.

    You should be able to request the unofficial canvasses from the County Clerk’s office. If all else fails, drop me an email (kuff – at – offthekuff – dot – com) and I’ll forward you a copy.
