However, there are some interesting things to point out. Joe Biden improved on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 result by 1,550 votes. Donald Trump improved on his vote total from 2016 by 400.
In the second biggest race on the ballot, that to represent the vast majority of Montgomery County in the US House of Representatives, Biden outperformed the Democratic Party candidate, while Trump underperformed against the Republican candidate.
|US House of Rep||Dean (D)||Barnette (R)|

|State Rep – 61||6,958||8,503||4,314||4,706|
If you look at all the other races, Biden outperformed his fellow Democrats in each race (even when you combine both state representative races). Trump underperformed the other Republicans on the ballot (including combining the state representative races).
