I'll bet you anything Obama won all those except Carson City, Oklahoma City, and Pierre. The urban/rural split is that wide now.

Romney won Jeff City by a 58.9-39.4 margin.

I'm a little skeptical that Romney would win a central city as big as Jefferson City by 20 points (at least in most states).

Also, I'm almost absolutely certain Obama won Charleston WV.

It's not "certain" that Obama won Charleston. I'd know, I live in West Virginia.

Romney won the county by less than 12%. The city has only 50,000 peeps but the county has almost 200,000.

By comparison, Romney managed to win my home county (Campbell KY) by 20%, but Obama won the largest central city (Newport) pretty handily. The city has 20,000 while the county has 90,000. By that standard, Obama probably won Charleston by about 8%.

Also, Kanawha County contains Sissonville, the town where those Nazis kept attacking the girl because she opposed the war. Sissonville is one of very few places in America that truly needs to have the federal government come in and take over the town.

I bet Sissonville was 90% for Romney. That accounts for much of his margin countywide.

1. Sissonville is in 70-75% Romney.

Wow, what a liberal town - not!
