    Erie Country was not the only county mentioned to go for Obama. Erie, Niagara and Monroe all went for Obama. I didn't bother checking any of the others, but I checked these since I knew they had urban areas. Monroe actually went resoundingly for Obama. You may mean that the rural portions of these counties did not go for Obama, but I would not know where to check that information.

    Personally, I would not assume that Hochul will do best in the Erie portion. That's Amherst, Williamsville territory, and though there may be plenty of UB faculty and staff there, it's still practically exurbs. I hope Democrats get excited to vote for her, but many I know still kind of hold a grudge against her brother, the Bush appointed Fed prosecutor, who went on a rather disgraceful Patriot Act binge and tried to jail artists in town. They even made a movie about her brother, starring Tilda Swinton. Check out the movie Strange Culture, it's about Hochul and the artists and scientists he tried to jail.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
