Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton finished in a near tie statewide, with Trump prevailing by roughly three-quarters of a percentage point.
Yet Trump led Clinton in 63 of the state’s 99 Assembly districts, according to a review of state election returns.
And he led her in 23 of the state’s 33 state Senate districts.
Those numbers reflect the baked-in advantage — and virtual lock — the GOP enjoys in the battle for control of the Legislature, thanks to a one-sided map. [source]
