Clinton won Cobb in state loss. So how'd your neighbors vote?

But how did Cobb vote?

In stunning fashion, Hillary Clinton lost Georgia but won the historically conservative Cobb by more than 6,800. About 160,000 of those voters came before Election Day.

She also won Gwinnett County, a three-decades long Republican stronghold.
