Here's McCain, which aside from Richmond, NY (Staten Island), should be a good guideline.

Not positive about the order, but these counties all have densities over 1,000 people/sq. mi.

Richmond   NY
Orange   CA
Colonial Heights city*   VA
Cobb   GA
Tarrant   TX
Va. Beach   city VA
Gwinnett   GA
Salem city   VA
Jefferson   LA
Waynesboro city   VA
Lynchburg city   VA
Bristol city*   VA
Monmouth   NJ
Seminole   FL
Anne Arundel   MD
Johnson   KS
Duval   FL
Morris   NJ
Tulsa*   OK

*McCain broke 60%

Lake County, Ohio has a density above 1,000 p/sqm and switched to Romney in 2012. I think it's the only one. The only other county that switched that I found that comes even close to 1,000 p/sqm is Chester County, Pennsylvania, and it's only in the 700 p/sqm range. Maybe some independent city in Virginia.

The #1 most densely populated county to vote for Romney is certainly Orange, CA.

You left out Maricopa County which I think is the largest county he won.

This is density (per sqm) not population. Maricopa County is so spread out, that it does not have that high a density.

I'm guessing densest precinct would be in Boro Park?

More likely South Williamsburg, which I think is denser. The Crown Heights Hasids are also possible, though I think there were only a couple Romney precincts there. But precincts are weird, and there could be a freakishly dense, Republican precinct pretty much anywhere.
