Washington is the most blue state in the country, followed by Minnesota, Oregon and California, according to a new analysis from The Hill newspaper in Washington, D.C. 

The Hill examined congressional delegations, legislative make-up and voting trends from past presidential elections in every state. In Washington, The Hill noted, voters have chosen a Democratic president in the past seven elections. Washington also has two Democratic senators, six Democratic House representatives (out of 10), three recent Democratic governors and a Democratic-controlled state Legislature. 

On the opposite end of the political spectrum is Alabama, the most Republican state in the nation, followed by Alaska, Idaho and Kansas.
