Republican Michigander :: List of McCain/Obama Counties
I noticed most of these were Southern and mostly likely due to the black vote outside of Franklin County, KY (Government). Richmond County, NY (Staten Island) has the hurricane. Chaffee County is in Colorado ski country, which has really gone leftist in the last 20 years with celebrity culture in the region. (Aspen, Eagle, etc).

I'm quite surprised how few county flips there were in 2012, at least in this direction.

Darlington SC
Rural Pee Dee County in SC-7 with large 40% ish black population. In much of rural SC Romney's vote % was down from McCain's while Obama's held steady or rose. The reason is that some rural whites stayed home or didn't vote for Romney because of his Mormon religion and/or corporate background plus moderate/MASS background (think Southern Baptists). The black vote was also as strong if not stronger than 08 in some of these counties. I think this same scenario is in place with most of the Southern counties where Romney did worse than McCain. I noticed the same pattern in some LA and MISS counties.


It's not much

My map are indeed showing 2 counties in Alabama that Obama carried in 2012 that he didn't in 2008.

Franklin County, KY is probably explainable as just enough Republicans moving into the next county over to flip it and should have little impact in Kentucky politics other than the county they moved into becoming more Republican.

43 Male Republican, Maryland Heights, MO Pattonville School District, Maryland Heights Fire District (MO-2). Previously lived in both Memphis and Nashville.

also counted Warren and Madison Counties, NY
Barbour Co, AL

Age 22, CA-18 (home), CA-13 (college)

Law and Order Communitarian, Civic Nationalist, Democrat, Francophile.

I'll become a conservative when America becomes a meritocracy
