Loving County

In this oddly named west Texas county, 22 Democratic primary votes were cast.

7 of these were for Barack Obama. 5 were for Hillary Clinton. Leaving 12 votes for all other options. How are these 22 Democrats so incredibly divided? Don't they cling to each other in abject terror most of the time?

Three counties in the panhandle beat out Loving with a grand total of zero Democratic primary votes.

Thanks, nytimes.com, for depressing me a little tonight.
