We know the counties that have the highest% of republican vote. We know the counties that have had the most republican votes. We know how many people per square mile each county has.

But does anyone know which counties have the most republican votes per square mile (2000 election)?

Sounds like something for Lewis to make a list of.

I'm guessing #1 is somewhere in suburban Dallas.

It would be impossible to "really" tell in Texas.  There's no party identification.

In 2000, metro Houston went for Bush 59%-40%.  Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex went 61%-37%.

However, the city of Dallas is majority Democrat normally (55-45, 60-40, I think).  Dallas County and suburbs are super-majority Republican (like 70% or so)

The city of Houston is roughly split between the two parties normally.  Harris County and the suburbs are extremely Republican, though less so than Dallas I think.  Also, you can't forget about Fort Bend County (home of Tom DeLay).

My bet would be in Texas, probably Collin County, where Plano and McKinney are.

Harris is a fairly large county.

Possible leaders:

New York, NY 3570 (Bush votes/sq mile)
Kings, NY 1360
Arlington, VA 1142
Queens, NY 1119
San Francisco, CA 1096
Hudson, NJ 932
Bronx, NY 862
Richmond, NY 835
Nassau, NY 798
Suffolk, MA 753
Philadelphia, PA 748
Orange, CA 686
Milwaukee, WI 676
Union, NJ 665
Pinellas, FL 660
Bergen, NJ 653
DuPage, IL 602
Delaware, PA 575
Cook, IL 565
Ramsey, MN 562
Essex, NJ 530
Fairfax, VA 512
Hamilton, OH 502

Harris, TX appears to be around 40th a bit behind Dallas (306 versus 366).

Funny. I was going to type New York but then decided against it. Oh well.

I'm not surprised. There's a lot of people packed in tight there.

Interesting that the most densely populated counties rather than the Republican counties are leading this list.

I'd be interested in seeing Gore votes per square mile.

It would be NYC. Maybe D.C. after that? Or San Francisco?

Let's say that even in the most densely populated counties Bush scored at least 20% of the votes, so Gore:Bush 4:1, while in "Republican" counties Gore scored at least 20%, Gore:Bush 1:4.

The population density has a much larger variation than the vote percentage.
