  •  I'm surprised Montgomery Co. wasn't bluer (0+ / 0-)

    Curious.  Do you know how Obama's performance compared to Kerry's and Gore's?

    •  It's in the second set of tables... (1+ / 0-)

      Obama did slightly better than Kerry and Gore.  Montgomery County is a strange mix of affluence and poverty, and the poverty isn't limited to Dayton.  A lot of the white working class is of Appalachian origin, and Obama's problems in that part of the country are well documented.  The area also has a strong military presence, centered around Wright-Patterson AFB.

      It's constitutional, bitches.

    •  Montgomery County is weird (0+ / 0-)

      They have a perpetual turnout problem there for Democrats. They also keep reelecting Mike "Who?" Turner, one of Ohio's more useless Congresscritters.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
