Bucking the swing of the rest of the South and actually giving Obama an improvement.  



What happened around N.O.?  Did everyone move back?  Either way, awesome stuff from my 2nd favorite major U.S. city, I guess 2008 was a GOP candidate maxed out.  



for the sake of reminiscing, here's me and my crew at the Katrina recovery effort in 2009.   

Possible that much of the Black population who was displaced from Hurricane Katrina returned.  It could also be amongst the white population there was a slight improvement (In Alabama Obama went up slightly according to the exit polls) as many of the older more racist ones have died in the last four years while the younger ones who became of age vote on issue not race, albeit considering how heavily the white vote in the rest of the country swung against Obama I am skeptical of this.  Mind you McCain got close to 85% of the white vote in Louisiana in 2008 meaning there really wasn't much room for growth left to being with.
