UPDATE: Manitowoc County turns slightly blue in Wisconsin Supreme Court election


50.4% for Rebecca Dallet

The following bar graph should be taken with a grain of salt, as we're comparing apples (fall 2016 partisan presdiential election) to oranges (spring 2018 'non-partisan' Supreme Court election).


Nevertheless, this is Manitowoc County we're looking at here, which voted blue in 9 of 12 presidential elections from 1960 to 1996.  In the 2016 presential election, the number of Democratic votes decreased 27% from the 2012 election.
