    elsewhere IIRC but they weren't to anything that remotely mattered; I can't remember exactly. As I have it, Obama won just 52.2% two party there in 2008. You must have given me a different version than your most recent non-partisan map then if the lines are different in Travis County as I wouldn't know where to begin changing them. Obama did definitely fall a good amount though in that part of it, however I should caution that the 2012 results are estimated based on the proportion of his 2008 results that were in the district compared to the county at large, so they could be plus or minus a point I suppose.

      That makes sense. I have so many maps that it could be any one of them and would take forever to figure out which.
