The Georgia Counties That Had the Most Support for Donald Trump

After Tuesday’s presidential primary in Georgia, you probably know that Donald Trump won every one of Georgia’s 159 counties except for Clarke, Cobb, DeKalb, and Fulton. And when you look at a map of the race, you see a sea of red except for those four. That isn’t very helpful in determining where The Donald is strongest, so I went ahead and put together this map:

The lightest county is DeKalb, where only 25.2% of voters chose Donald Trump on their ballots. Atkinson county in southeast Georgia is the deepest shade of orange, with 65.9% of its voters being Trump supporters. In general, Trump enjoyed the least support in metro Atlanta, and slightly more support in the Peach State’s larger cities, including Augusta, Columbus, and Savannah. For the most part, Trump’s support was lower in the mountains than it was below the fall line, and strongest in southwest Georgia.
