Hmm, that's an interesting idea, looking forward to seeing that.
Here are both maps, side-by-side. I think the raw vote map does a better job of showing how many votes each candidate gained over the others, as well as better representing population.

Raw vote is definitely a good idea for something like a US state where the subdivisions don't have anything like equal electorates. I've considered myself how to do that in the past, but ended up just doing a population map alongside the usual maps. The only disadvantage to your method is you'll have to recalibrate your scale with each state's wildly different population/distribution, so it'd be hard to do a map covering more than one state at once.

Yeah, would be tough to see a comparison among different states. But I like this method and will probably use it for the other primaries, even if I have to change the scale.
