Overview: Trump's 68.17% of the vote was on par with recent Republican showings, while the Clinton ticket obtained a dismal 21.88%–her worst showing of any state.  Trump's plurality was 118,446 votes (46.29 percentage points).  Trump carried all counties except for Teton (Jackson).  LBJ was the last Democrat to carry Wyoming, in 1964.  Given the one-sided nature of the presidential race in Wyoming, some activists made trips to Colorado to help out there; for example the drive from Laramie to Fort Collins takes little more than an hour.
   Sen. Tim Kaine did a couple of fundraisers in Jackson on Aug. 18.  Donald Trump Jr. visited Jackson on Oct. 3 for a fundraiser hosted by Foster Friess at the headquarters of his Brandywine Fund.  Independent candidate Evan McMullin spoke at a campaign event at the Lodge at Snow King Resort in Jackson on the evening of Oct. 24.
