When looking at these primary maps, its almost as if Obama/Clinton and Romney/Santorum look like the same urban/rural split.

When looking at these primary maps, its almost as if Obama/Clinton and Romney/Santorum look like the same urban/rural split.

It's not so much an urban/rural cleavage in the Republican primary so much as it is a suburban/rural divide. Santorum polled quite well in the big cities - he won Dayton and Toledo and came very close to beating Romney in Columbus. Income and religion are, I think, the two most relevant cleavages to explaining the divide.

really cool.  I wonder if Ward and Trimble townships are especially libertarian.  What's up with the one Gingrich precinct?

I think that's just an anomalous result in a part of the state in which Gingrich's achieved his best results - in the rural vicinity of Dayton. There's nothing particularly unusual about Perry Township (52 votes for Gingrich, 44 Santorum, 43 Romney, 13 Paul).

How would religion be an explaining factor? It looks like Santorum did well among Catholics in the northwest, not so much around Cincinnati and Cleveland.

Yeah, that wasn't right at all. It's actually pretty astonishing how small of a role religion played in this primary.

Re: the 2008 Democratic map - it seems like you can really pick out where the Dixiecrat vote was/is still strong (WV, AR, Northern Alabama, OK, KY, etc.), in that they massively favored Clinton, and you can see where most White voters seem to have just become 100% Republicans (MS, Southern Alabama, SC, etc.).
