Instead of using the precinct data I have for Wisconsin on county towns/villages/cities like I have in the past, I thought I would basically rap it up and put it as one. I'm going to show you the vote of Wisconsin's biggest cities over 30,000 population (in order of population), I'll go even further than that if I you ask. I will add the county the city is from in parentheses so you'll know somewhat where it is. I might also do a separate thread on some big villages (like Menominee Falls) that I think should be cities.

BTW, if you have precinct results for other states besides Wisconsin, that would be awesome. Right now I only have Wisconsin and it would be nice to find out what some other states would be like. Specifically if you can find precinct results where you can open an excel page, that would make my day.

Note: For cities that are within two or more counties (like Appleton) I did calculate all the votes from those cities, I just don't show all the counties in the parentheses because it takes up too much room and I will only show 2 or more counties in parentheses if the city is equally in either county (like Watertown, Whitewater).

Interesting.

Do you know what the largest non-suburb Romney won was? (As in, the largest city at the core of a metropolitan or micropolitan area).

I have a similar list like this for California's 30 largest cities. I could post it here.

This has precinct maps/results for North Carolina, though precincts don't necessarily correspond with city lines.

I don't think there was a big city/area that voted for Romney, really in Wisconsin Romney only won suburbs and rural areas within counties, and Obama wins big cities and villages in the heart of most counties. The biggest city to vote Romney was Waukesha, but then again that's kind of a suburb. What cities in your state voted Obama (2012) besides Salt Lake City, Summit Park, Park City? Was there any suburbs of Salt Lake City that voted for Obama?

I'm pretty certain the only suburb in Utah to vote for Obama in 2012 would be South Salt Lake, which was 61 percent Obama in 2008, meaning even if it swung as much as the county, it still would have narrowly gone for Obama.

Obama narrowly prevailed in some of Salt Lake County's other suburbs in 2008, including very narrow victories in West Valley City, Magna, Kearns, and Murray. He also won Milcreek by a few points, but it probably flipped to Romney in 2012. Although not a suburb, he also came within a hair of winning Ogden in 2008, only losing 49-47.

As for other towns, I'm very certain Obama won the rural eastern part of SL County, which includes the town of Alta and Emigration Canyon Township/CDP. I have confirmed via precinct results that Obama won Springdale and Rockville, two very small towns in Washington County, just outside Zion National Park. He might have won Moab, but I'm not sure. I think he also won Castle Valley (a town in Grand County that was 65 percent Obama in 2008) and possibly Torrey (a very small town just outside Capitol Reef National Park). And, of course, Obama won every settlement inside the Navajo Indian reservation in San Juan County, and all by large margins.

By the census standards, the largest city at the core of a metropolitan or micropolitan area in Wisconsin won by Romney is Watertown. The census considers Watertown the core of the Watertown-Ft. Atkinson micropolitan area. It's probably somewhat debatable as to whether Watertown is really not a suburb, but it's the only Romney city listed that isn't completely a suburb. Otherwise, perhaps Marinette or Wisconsin Rapids? Both look like they might be close in 2012 from 2008 numbers at least.

Fondy was so close to making the answer to this question obvious, only 122 votes shy!

Where'd you get that idea from? Obama took 62.0% in Marinette city in 2008, 58.2% in 2012.

Wisconsin Rapids was 53.0% Obama.

I would not call Watertown a suburb.

To be honest, I'd even be a bit hesitant to apply the label to West Bend, county lines notwithstanding. But I realize (as some silly debates on the atlas have shown) that what people classify as a suburb can vary a lot depending on the character of the metro areas they're most used to, so my usage may be idiosyncratic.

Got a new batch coming tomorrow, I'll add cities and villages 15,000-20,000.

There, done.

Watertown is definitely not a suburb. It's closer to Madison than Milwaukee anyway and it's tough to see anyone considering it a Madison suburb especially with how it votes.

West Bend though seems like an textbook exurb.
