How about any non-Southern counties, because nearly every county in the South is bound to fit this profile.

Well, I said major places, which most southern counties are not.

Well, if you rule out the South and Plains States, I can't think of too many places that have trended from Dem to GOP.  However, I can think of a long list of places that have done the opposite -Vermont, Connecticut, Los Angeles and Long Beach (Heck, California in general), Philadelphia (as Flyers will point out gladly), and the list goes on...
