    The demographics of which are changing.  Used to be 115% white, now it's a bit less.  Home of the execrable alan cropsy though, one of the bigger con/pub/fundie aholes of the 90s.  He'd give rickie santorum a run for his money in the fundie department.  

    Rural Clinton county is decidedly publican country, though.  Did quite a bit of canvassing up there, so I've got a little experience with it.  Not sure it's less conservative than the Det.  exurbs though.  Too early to say much more without some data.

      That's what I'd like to know.  I live in Ingham, and it'd be my guess that Clinton that Clinton has gotten quite a bit less red than even just a decade ago for the sole fact that the overwhelming majority of growth in the county (the fastest growing in Michigan, BTW) was in suburban Lansing, particularly Bath Township, which grew almost exclusively because of massive new student apartment complexes in the land East Lansing annexed during the decade in the county.  

      I'm not exactly sure what was picked up in Oakland County that we didn't have before.  I think Rochester Hills was picked up.  

      But, I don't know the actual numbers.
