    for one, they split precincts between county council districts, so there's 4000 more votes for President in the precincts in the Bostic/Rawl district than for County Council (15K to 11K)

    In the precincts in the district, it was 55/43 Obama (1800 votes). But out of 23 precincts, 11 had 100+ more votes for President than County Council, suggesting a split. And Obama won 10 of those 11 precincts. And if you divide the CC votes by President votes, and times the President votes by that percent, and add them up. Closer to 450 vote Obama win. Which is around the totals of the precinct results for Rawl/Bostic (Rawl beat Bostic by around 2 to 1 with absentees as well)

    The formula, for reference, from one precinct

    54 votes for CC / 285 votes for President = 15.93%

    McCain Votes times 15.93, Obama votes times 15.93

    Add up the votes by precinct.

    Also, the communities in the district: one Johns Island precinct, 4 precincts from St. Pauls, 7 from St Andrews and the rest from North Charleston

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo
