    If you zoom in you'll see that in addition to the SW side of Bloomington (more labor, blue collar, and African-American), it runs strait up main street to include Illinois State and the neighborhoods where many students and faculty live.

    This is where I lived for many years and Democrats there aren't accustomed to the idea that they might have a chance to be competitive.

    The rest of Bloomington-Normal is very Republican with a very suburban flavor.   Surrounded by farmland.

    I'd like Republicans better if they weren't such assholes.
