I know they gave the county by county breakdown, so I was wondering which state capitals of the ones below went for Romney vs. Obama.  I assumed Obama won everyone in the states where he won the county they are located in.  Any thoughts

Juneau, AK - Alaska does give county by county breakdown, but pretty sure Obama easily won this.

Juneau is very D. Obama won it. (Obama also won all of the State Senate districts in and around Juneau.) Even when Alaska was voting much more Republican than it is now, Juneau was always the Democrats' stronghold in the state.

Salem was likely for Obama. The rural parts of Marion County are very conservative (the part in Polk County is tiny).

I think probably Obama, but not certain.

Yup. SLC was like 70% Obama in 2008. He definitely won it.

Phoenix is pretty marginal, actually, but I think Kerry won it by a point or two (and Obama by about 5 in 2008), so Obama probably did in 2012 as well.

Sounds right to me.

I think Obama won both handily in 2008, so likely won them again in 2012.

Pretty sure this was McCain in 2008 and not close, so almost certainly Romney this year.

Yeah, Jefferson City is the weird stand-out super-R capital city.

I would guess it voted for Obama; the rural parts of the county were around 65-70% McCain in 2008, and the suburbs are quite conservative. But hard to know for certain, especially given the big swing.

Annapolis is very Democratic, probably 65% Obama or so. The conservatives in Anne Arundel County are in places like Lake Shore and Cape St. Claire (military and retired military) as well as the Baltimore suburbs.

Would like to know this one as well. IIRC, we don't know who won in 2008, either, though it was very likely Obama that year.
