I'll probably complete this over the next few days. As always, right click for huge version.

For Reference:
Gingrich - Orange
Romney - Green
Santorum - Blue
Paul - Yellow
Cain - Purple

Cool. I was looking up precincts myself to make sure mine voted the right way.

This is awesome.

Very predictable results though.

What program do you use?
MapWindow to make the blank map, and Paint.NET to color it in.

Gingrich won in my parents precinct, followed by Santorum and Romney in 3rd.  Considering the large transplant population where they are (especially from the northeast), thought Romney would do better.

Updated with Charleston, Beaufort, Sumter, and several other counties. Not much left to go now.

Why is the western part of the state so strong for Gingrich?

Why is the string of (if memory serves me) majority black towns/cities in the North of the state so disproportionally Romney-friendly? One would expect that the GOP in those towns would be even more than elsewhere the party of the white half of the population. Or are there a lot of democrats crossing over to vote in the primary over there?

I don't have to tell you how formidable this map is, Shilly, thanks.

Could you give us some insets of Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach, etc.?

The white parts of Columbia and Charleston are traditionally Republican, fairly wealthy and educated. This is the perfect formula for a Romney victory. The neighborhoods that went strongly for Romney are indicative of the type of place that voted for Ford over Carter in 76.

So: there were no crossovers but the GOP electorate is moderate and doesn't act very southern. Charleston voted for McCain against Bush in 2000.

Thank god for the quiet political map people who still show up and post this stuff from time to time.

As much as I like arguing with people here, this is the true value the forum/Atlas provides.

Hat tip.

Cool. I was looking up precincts myself to make sure mine voted the right way.

I assume the historic south of Broad neighborhood in SC voted for Mittens.  Is that right?

Mittens won most if not all of Charleston peninsula, the barrier islands, and the resort towns. He won my precinct 436-101 over Newt. Folly Beach I think went to Newt and the poorer North Charleston which unfortunately lessened Mittens' margins in the state overall.

So: there were no crossovers but the GOP electorate is moderate and doesn't act very southern. Charleston voted for McCain against Bush in 2000.

There has always been a split in the SC GOP between the evangelical upstate, which tend to be poorer, less educated Republicans who favor social issues, and the more moderate low country. McCain won 44% in 2008 and McCain won the county in 2000.

Mitt won the Charleston city proper, resort towns and barrier islands but lost the poorer North Charleston and didn't play as well as McCain in the Myrtle Beach area. Mittens basically won the types of Republicans that are no longer in the GOP or leaving it in droves.

Hilarious how the city folk and country folk have to vote differently, even in a primary.
