Outside of Wando and Academic Magnent, most of the people I know went to private schools in Charleston.
 
I was kind of surprised at the voting here in 2012. We swung hard to Obama in 2008 and seemed to move back towards Mittens in 2012, but maybe he played well in Charleston as opposed to McCain. Many people in my community who voted for Obama in 2008 switched back because of the economy and taxes.

Voters here tend to be more liberal than the state has a whole. Charleston opposed the same sex marriage ban in 2006 when the state overwhelmingly approved the amendment. But we are getting whiter. Much of the property is being restored downtown and other places, and young affluent people are moving in, either graduates from the college or those who moved here from other places. Places that were dangerous or run down 12 years ago are now vibrant and new, with new communities springing up. So it's growing and changing a lot (pop is up 25% since 2000).
