Maurizio Pisati, the author of -tmap-, has informed me that legends
can be left-aligned by adding the options -just(left) bexpand-.

. tmap choropleth winner if conterminous, id(id)
map(us-Coordinates.dta) legpos(7) legsize(2) legtitle("US
Presidential Election", just(left) bexpand) clmethod(unique)

Thank you, Maurizio.
