Going through DRA, I'm talking about Nelson County, which 82% white, Buckingham County, which is 61% white, Fluvanna (which Obama did not win, but did well in 2008), which is 79% white.

Then there is Albermarle county, but I'm guessing that's due to Charlottesville spill over?

Excellent work!  How about Spokane County WA?

What's the explanation behind that single Romney precinct in Seattle?

It should also be very interesting to see the entire map of Washington when it comes to marijuana legalization, since support looks like it was quite broad.

I believe it's a pretty wealthy gated community on the Broadmoor country club.

It does seem like that sort of description would easily fit a pro-Romney area, namely one that is both strongly fiscally conservative and socially liberal (especially since that same precinct apparently voted easily for gay marriage and for marijuana legalization). It's still pretty odd to see even one Romney precinct in a city so Democratic as Seattle. I'm not entirely sure, but it looks like that is the same precinct McCain lost 46-53 in 2008.

The people who live there are basically Romney clones, extremely wealthy, golf playing, 1%ers.

Obama winning it in '08 was unusual.

King County, WA, Obama (red) vs. Gay marriage (blue):



Same type of dynamic as Snohomish County. Rich areas were much more favorable to gay marriage than Obama, while poorer and minoritied areas were the opposite.

Very cool! What's up with the northern part of King County? Is it similar to the areas around Federal Way and Renton? Also I see some red around Bellevue...I guess Asians? Sad

Obama v. Marijuana (red is Obama, blue is marijuana)



Much more of an urban/rural divide here, but the rich/poor/minoritied areas still voted like they did for gay marriage.

Bellevue has non-negligible Hispanic population as well. Also, for northern King County, look back at my Snohomish County map. Shoreline, Bothell, Lake Forest Park, even the northern reaches of Seattle have more in common with Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds, and Lynnwood than Capitol Hill.

I would request to see my three home counties -- Kings, NY; Champaign, IL; and Cuyahoga, OH.

You should be able to do a map on the Maryland side of the DC Metro (Montgomery Co., Prince George's Co., Washington, D.C.)

There you go. Let him focus on the areas that have not been done by news organizations.

Since the precinct shapefiles should be the same as in the 2012 Virginia presidential election, how difficult would it be to do a precinct map for the U.S. Senate election in Virginia? I'm not sure how you did the map of Virginia by precinct when I've only been able to find precinct results county-by-county.

I just love how the people who voted for Romney because Obama was for "big government" also voted against legalizing gay marriage and marijuana.

Tea Party hypocrisy never fails to amaze.

This might be the best map I've ever made.

Compare the 2012 map to the 2008 map:
Of course, the projections and resolutions are different.

Obama won almost every precinct in Mason county again. Beautiful map, I wish the 2012 results could make there way into DRA!

I should have the R-74 map up in a couple of days. Depends on when I have the time.
