Check out all the blue, especially the Virginia blue that carried Obama to victory.

You can also see how the Democratic patterns match up with DC area highways, pushing north south along Interstate 95 and east west out the other interstate, but forget which one.

As I suspected, Obama dropped in wealthy white areas and rose in minority-majority areas.

I noticed Obama did particularly well in precincts along I-66 and I-95. I did some research and noticed that the foreign-born and Asian population is especially high along I-66 and I-95.
