    2012:

    Darkest red: about 33% Obama, darkest blue: almost 70% Obama. Colors are done at 5 point intervals: 50, 55, 60, 65, etc.

    Our state house incumbent lives in the county, in Clatskanie, and this is how he performed compared to Obama:

    Pink is up to 5 points worse, light blue is up to 5 points better, darker is 5-10. It's a little deceptive because he actually did much worse on Sauvie Island, but it only has a few dozen voters and in DRA is attached to a bigger precinct which drowns it out.

    Columbia County is trending Republican, but its nice to see the little cities there still have some bright blue precincts.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
