Clearing the decks for production night at the Outpost, I ran across some election stats that didn't make the paper and that I haven't noticed anywhere else (which is not to say that it didn't appear anywhere else).

Of Montana's 56 counties, Barack Obama won 40. Hillary Clinton won these: Carter, Custer, Daniels, Dawson, Deer Lodge, Garfield, Musselshell, Petroleum, Phillips, Prairie, Richland, Silver Bow, Toole, Valley, Wheatland and Wibaux. Sounds like guns and religion country to me.

Obama won the small counties in the south west part of the state. He also won the northwest, northeast and southeast corners, and the central counties.

That is, he won most of the god n' guns counties. Seems to more of a regional trend than economic from where I'm sittin'.
