I wonder how much the original city voted and its racial demographic.

I'd guess it's similar to the IN -7 district, which voted 58% for Kerry.
No, it's much smaller. (I've no idea how democratic or black it is, though.)

In 1960, the city had 476k inhabitants and covered 71k square miles
In 1970, the city had 745k inhabitants and covered 379k square miles - a larger area than today, actually (361k square miles)
IN7 covers 262k square miles.

The city boundaries had expanded several times before, btw:
1910 (earliest data I found) 33k sqm
1920 44k sqm
1930-40 54k sqm
1950 55k sqm
1960 71k sqm
1970 379k sqm
1980 352k sqm. The 1970s were also the only decade ever that Indy's population fell in.
1990 362k sqm
2000 361k sqm

The crazy thing though is with those numbers, Indianapolis whites had to had voted Bush about 2:1,

In the suburban wingnut counties maybe, but not in Marion County.

It's simple math with the demographics. Mind you though that the outer parts of Marion county are basically the same as the uber-GOP suburban counties, so if Bush is winning 75% of whites in those areas, he clearly isn't getting the 2:1 numbers in the urban part of Indianapolis.

It would also be interesting to see what was the most densely populated city to vote for Bush, since some of the conservative large cities (Dallas, Phoenix, Jacksonville, etc.) contain a lot of suburban areas.

I'm pretty sure Anaheim voted for Bush. Density 7,117.7/sq mi.

Indianapolis, Nashville, and Jacksonville do it right. They allow the entire county to vote in elections because they are consolidated- city governments which makes their entire counties part of their cities. This allows for Republicans to compete at the city leve. Brilliant!!!

By that logic, the GOP ought to be competitive in the Bronx as well.
