In Philadelphia and its suburbs - Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties - Clinton fared about as well as or better than Obama did against Republican Mitt Romney in 2012. She won by a 634,588-vote margin in the region.
Philadelphia alone was a success story. With more than 99 percent of the vote counted in the city, Clinton had 562,717 votes Wednesday. That gave her a margin of 456,933 over Trump - a level experts had believed would carry her to statewide victory.
