Thank you, I take that as a huge compliment! I've been doing my best to use OTL politicians and dissidents wherever I can and referring either to OTL events or other things that feel like they could easily have happened in TTL, I'm really glad it's paying off.I like how "real" this feels. The realism is quite something.
Mineral County voting to the left of Washoe?This is a county map for @Reagent's mini-TL "Change Deferred," where Barack Obama is assassinated during the 2008 primaries and Hillary Clinton becomes President. She loses re-election to Mitt Romney in 2012, and in 2016 Trump runs as a Democrat with a populist style similar to his OTL 2016 run but with liberal stances on issues like healthcare and the environment. In a mirror result of OTL 2016, Trump wins decently in the Electoral College but loses the popular vote to Romney as the result of a strong showing in working class areas but bleeding support among college educated voters in metropolitan areas. The wikibox showing the results by state and popular vote numbers can be seen on Reagent's original post here.
Using this methodology, I calculated the results by county.I created a map based on a 1992 poll in which Perot came in first.
Used weighted swings instead of uniform swings.
(Each candidate's votes are multiplied by a factor based on the polls and then adjusted for the number of total votes cast in each state)

One notable thing: Hawaii and Maryland are going to Bush.
When you said 'adult cartoons' I thought this was going to be about something *very* different...Here's a little something based on a Reddit post I saw showing the most popular adult cartoon by state according to Google Trends:

South Park: 255 EVs
The Simpsons: 225 EVs
Family Guy: 39 EVs
Rick and Morty: 19 EVs
Unsurprisingly, South Park and Family Guy win their 'home states' (Colorado and Rhode Island), but otherwise the patterns are fairly loose- I'm surprised there's that much of the South where Family Guy is most popular given how much Seth McFarlane makes fun of it, and how in some stereotypically very liberal states like Vermont and Hawaii South Park is most popular, for instance. I'm also curious if there's any rhyme or reason to the states where Rick and Morty is most popular, as they seem pretty inexplicable.
