Results by county


After losing badly in Mississippi to Barack Obama eight years earlier, Hillary Clinton managed a 66-point routing against Bernie Sanders in the state in 2016. She carried all counties and won across all demographics, income levels and educational attainment levels. The key to Clinton's success, however, was an 89-11 showing among African American voters, who made up 71% of the Democratic electorate in the state. Mississippi gave Clinton her largest win in any state during the 2016 primaries.
