  •  suburban gains offset rural losses (0+ / 0-)

    I compared the 2002 Talent/Carnahan map with the 2008 Obama/McCain map. Both are very close losses. The 2002 map has blue counties scattered all over rural Missouri. The 2008 map does not. In 2002 Carnahan won St. Louis County (suburbs) 51-48. In 2008 Obama won St. Louis County 60-40. So the trend seems to be us gaining votes in the suburbs while losing votes in the rural part of the state.
