A little election analysis

Went back and looked at the county by county vote totals for Nov. 2008 for the Gov race, just to see how we did. I was very disappointed in the result, receiving only 2.8%. Yes, that's more than the 2% threshold required to keep the Libs on the ballot, but we really got smoked, in spite of a pretty big statewide effort.

Still....what went right? What counties came down heavily "for," in the Percent Vote column? A map....
Green is 4% and above, Yellow is 3-3.99%, White is 1.5-2.99%, and Red is less than 1.49%. (Click the map to enlarge)

So, pretty good in the southern coastal areas (Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, etc.), in the liberal part of the central Piedmont (Durham-Chapel Hill-Greensboro), and generally best of all in the mountains, especially Buncombe County (Asheville).

Tomorrow: Same Map by Total Votes, not Percent Votes....Stay Tuned!

Is there a way to break it down demographically? i.e. race, education, etc.

A bit of NC knowledge suggests a positive correlation with education and a negative correlation with black share of the population.

I would very interested in the Particular Vote. By that I mean to eliminate everybody who voted straight-ticket. How did the more thougtful people vote?

so this is the real number? for a time I wanted to know this, but now I see that is totally useless, because no matter the try, the result will be the same all the time.
