I thinks this gives an interesting perspective into the election.  It also provides which counties are most partisan and which ones are most swing.  As you can see, Utah county produced the highest percentage for Bush while Travis Co., TX is the biggest Bush swing county.  You can also see that most of Bush's counties are suburbs or smaller cities.  I will post the Gore list soon.

Collin, TX (Plano, McKinney) - 73.1

Denton, TX (Denton, Lewisville) - 69.6

I think Montgomery, TX has a chance to come in FIRST this election.  We've maintained explosive growth the last four years, of which the vast majority was in high income housing.

Perhaps I misunderstand the title of this thread.  Most urban/suburban counties are going to have over 100,000 votes for Bush, whether Kerry won them or not.

It is a list of counties with 100,000 or more votes (no matter who they were fore) where Bush won. That is, Bush's highest percentage wins in very populated counties.

Yeah, so it says. Hillsborough FL 53.0%
It also says "Hillsborough NJ 51.1%" That should be Hillsborough NH.
Dauphin PA is not a pickup but crossed 100,000 votes.
St Joseph IN and Caddo LA both swung Republican and crossed 100,000 votes.

Hey, thanks for the update.  I like doing this, but I just never found the time to update it yet.  It's very time-consuming.

Very encouraging for republicans...9 pickups (3 net pickups) and 14 counties crossing 100,000 votes.  I'm pissing my pants right now.

Proof that liberals should fear sprawl, generation Y (a large generation, 8 years in H.S. and college under Bush), and economic development.  I expect a desperate outbreak of eco-terror.

Just because you and your friends go around in school calling everybody "gay" doesn't mean Gen Y is more conservative.

But all Americans should fear sprawl, it is unhealthy for our country.

I'm not assuming anything. Isn't "bushforever" the one who posted about how he thinks Gen Y will be against gay-rights because everybody at his school hates gays?

Yes, I do believe our generation has more conservative viewpoints.  But it is generally the time period we have grown up in, the fact that church attendance has increased, we have been under a Republican president during our H.S. and college years, we inherit many of our parent's traits, we were raised on big business, we are the 9/11 generation, etc., etc.  And come on, 2/3 of people have generally spoken against gay marriage as seen in most polling.  And abortion is becoming less frequent and less of an issue, or even an option these days.  Why must every post I create turn into a massive hatefest against me.  This post started out as pure factual data.  Yeah, I inserted my own general perception in a post.  But must you attack me on everything defending yourself with your own assumptions?!?  Give me a break.  Don't you have anything better to do than pick on a 17-year old??

People try to put us down...Just because we get around.  I'm not trying to cause a big sensation...I'm just talkin' bout my generation.

And based on my school (at least last year) the Democrats will never leave office for the next 70 years and win with 80% of the vote.

Good news!

Yeah, I inserted my own general perception in a post.  But must you attack me on everything defending yourself with your own assumptions?!? 

Bahaha. I have *never* seen someone post as many assumptions as you do.

I just tell people how I see things.  I'm not saying that what happens in my world and in my viewpoint necessarily is true all across the USA.  Based on what I see, I would guess that Gen Y would trend GOP.  But, maybe from what you see, it would trend Dem.  But some things are obvious...we are the 9/11 Generation.  And the way matters (anti-gay marriage sentiment, pro business, anti-tax, pro-life, pro-defense) are trending under 8 years of Bush, I see that they would trend that way for the new generation as well.  Sure, I may be making assumptions.  But you make plenty of them yourself, you have no room to accuse, and neither do I.   And this is a post about 2000 Election Counties for Bush anyway.  You just try to sneak in and attack me wherever you can, don't ya.  And where's my apology for namecalling back in the Cook Co. post??  Just shows the maturity of liberals, don't it.

Hey, I've tried to make amends...if I'm going to apologize so should you, but I don't expect you to nor do I demand it because I really don't care...this is just the internet.

Anyway, Gen X grew up under Reagan and Bush yet they are not overwhelmingly conservative? As a matter of fact they are the most liberal generation on gay marriage, and I think Gen Y will be even more liberal. Abortion is always going to be a divisive issue...The majority of Americans are pro-choice and I don't see that changing for some time, but there will always be a fair amount of pro-lifers in the future.

OK fine about the apology thing.

I don't think Gen Y will be liberal on gay marriage though.  Based on what I see, we kind of copy our parent's generation (baby boom), so if they choose to ban it in several states, I'm sure we will do the same.  And since the large generation produced another large generation via family and reproduction, I'm sure we will as well.  We're not really a rebel generation, we're more of a copycat generation, leave things the way they are generation.  So what happens in the next 4 years, I doubt we will change.  So if abortion is still legal, if gay marriage is continually banned, my belief is that it will stay that way for our generation.    Maybe I have it wrong on how a generation is, based on the president they grew up with.  But I think I have it right on Gen X being a rebel/liberal generation, while Y being a passive/conservative generation.  I believe that most generations are 50/50 but they lean one way or another.  And the leans generally occur every other generation.  Baby Boomer...lean conservative.  Gen X...lean liberal.  Gen Y...lean conservative.  The Generation after us...lean liberal (even though they are very young, I can just sense it).
