This might actually be more believable if you switched the Romney and Others vote.  Aside from a smattering of econ and engineering professors, I doubt you'll find Republican support anywhere here.  Tongue  (And even the econ profs will be more Obama than average, the Ivies are more saltwater than freshwater.)

What makes you think Xbox Live members would favour Obama and Democrats? If anything, you'd see a lot of Other votes, particularly for Libertarians and Greens.

Given that the "Other" vote was only about 1.5% this election, I have a hard time believing that all these groups have average to above-average "Other" support.
