How red or blue is your state?

Alabama is the most Republican and Washington state the most Democratic state, according to new rankings from The Hill. 

The Hill looked at voting trends and history in all 50 states to find the most secure Republican and Democratic strongholds, and which states appear to be up for grabs.

Factoring into the analysis are votes in recent presidential elections, the breakdown of congressional delegations, the parties of the past three governors and control of the state legislatures.

Washington state has voted for Democratic candidates in the last seven presidential elections and is represented by two Democratic senators. Six of its 10 representatives in the House are Democrats, as are its past three governors. Democrats also control the Legislature.

At the other end is Alabama, which has gone Republican in the last seven presidential elections. Both of its senators are Republicans as are six of its seven House members and its governor.

The geography is no surprise. The country is split between red states in the West and South — with Idaho and Kansas on the red side with Alabama — and blue states on the coasts and in the Midwest. Minnesota and Oregon join Washington at the blue end of the spectrum.

In this fall’s races, some candidates are vying to buck their states' trends.

He is in a tight race with Republican Dan Sullivan. 

In Kansas, a red state where no one expected a close race, independent Greg Orman is giving Republican Sen. Pat RobertsPat RobertsGOP senators ask watchdog to examine Gitmo site surveys spending Senate panel approves pension rescue for coal miners Congress set for Saudi showdown with Obama MORE a real scare. 

In blue Massachusetts, Democrat Martha Coakley is polling slightly behind Republican Charlie Baker. And even though Wisconsin is blue, it has a Republican governor, Scott Walker, who took on public sector unions and is battling for reelection this year. 

There’s a little purple in every state.
