Now that the 2016 election is pretty much in the history books, here are few trivia questions to lighten the mood of an otherwise (to my mind) grim outcome.  Don’t cheat by looking up historical maps or records!  If you give up, here are the answers.

Question 1:  Which state now has the longest active streak of voting for the winner of the national electoral vote?

Question 2:  Which state now has the longest active streak of voting for the winner of the national popular vote?

Question 3:  Which state now has the longest active streak of voting within 5 percentage points of the national winning margin? (Explanation: Hillary Clinton has won the national popular vote by 1%, so states with anything between a 4% margin for Trump to a 6% margin for Clinton would make the cut in 2016.)
