The presidential primary season may be over and done with, but people are getting in their political fix anyway they can--even if that means byway of fictional political television shows. The CenturyLink team researched the top politically-charged television shows from the past decade and used Google Trends data to determine which state loves which political shows most.

Some of their most interesting findings are as follows:
  • Predominantly republican states love Scandal.
  • Predominantly democrat states love 24 (yes, even still).
  • DC is a fan of watching shows based in DC. House of Cards, West Wing, Veep, Commander in Chief, and The Americans all fall in DC's top five list.
  • Midwesterners loves political comedies more than political dramas.
  • Nevada, home to Sin City, loves crime­-focused shows like 24 and The Wire.

Take a look for yourself:
