Yeah, unless you can find something in New Square or Kiryas Joel that's stronger, or a small rural district (a few dozen votes) somewhere out West that gave 100% to McCain.

Voting district 593 in Oklahoma county

Mccain 2 Obama 0

Giving Mccain an impressive 100 per cent of the vote.

And there you have it. That NJ one might be McCain's best east of the Mississippi, though.

Not really. There are at least five 100% McCain districts in Florida, for example, which has a lot of electoral districts with only a handful of people.

I was referring to EDs that had a decent amount of votes in them.  I'll be shocked at least 100 ED in the country that were 100% for McCain with less then 10 votes.

From what I've seen, the Lakewood Township ED was McCain's strongest populous precinct in the U.S.  It would be pretty damn hard to beat, although there are a few other <1% Obama precincts (Pinesdale, Montana, for instance.)

McCain's best precinct in New Square was Ramapo 35 (97.5%)
McCain's best precinct in Kiryas Joel was Monroe 20 (95.3%)

Those were two of his strongest outside very sparsely populated areas in the Northeast.

there were higher and in more dense places in the north east
McCain's best precinct in Lakewood NJ was 99.6
McCain's best precinct in Brooklyn was 97.6 322-8
but the question was about the whole country not the North East.

Sure. But since you are "NY Jew", I thought you might be interested to know it.

thank you though I know all the NY and NJ (and for that matter most of the NE results its mostly western states I don't have including places I think might have a chance of being unanimous like Utah (though I wouldn't be surprised if next time around there are going to be many unanimous districts for whoever the candidate is))

Any ultra-GOP precincts in urban areas aside from Orthodox Jews?

As for state House districts, I found two 80% McCain state House districts in the Texas Panhandle.

Pinesdale was McCain 274, Paul 21, Nader 6, Obama 2, Barr 1.

McCain 90.13%, Paul 6.91%, Nader 1.97%, Obama 0.66%.

The presence of Baldwin on the Utah ballot probably screwed up McCain's performance in FLDS towns, but Obama may have gotten <1% in some.  Bob Barr didn't seem to ignite the passions of the insular religious crowd, so FLDS Colorado City, Arizona (where no Constitution Party candidate was on the ballot) may have been strongly McCain.

Edit: Nope.  Colorado City was McCain 614, Nader 84, Write-ins 44, Barr 24, Obama 14, McKinney 13.  Go figure, one of Nader's best national precincts was fundamentalist Mormons.  Hell of a lot of write-ins, too.  For the record, that gave Obama 1.77%.  That's way better than John Kerry's hilarious performance of 1/618 votes (0.16%), which put him well behind Bush (606) and Badnarik (11).  That time no write-in votes were cast at all...what a strange place.

does 80%+ count
there was a 80% plus in Brighton Beach in Brooklyn (Brighton Beach has a small Orthodox presence though not sure about that specific ED but is due to Russian Jews who also vote Republican)
if you meant outside of the more liberal states there are many 80+ in Texas

if you want a 90%+  I have a 90.7% in Lubbock just inside of the city limits (though it looks semi rural)

and I though the Orthodox was strange to someone who doesn't understand Orthodox jews.  This has to top that.  If you would tell me there would be a ED that gave Nader a more then 6 to1 lead over Obama with more then 7 votes cast I would assume that this was one of the most liberal districts in the country.  Do you have any understanding what caused this.

Based on the sheer quantity of write-ins, my assumption was that Nader was the "Other" vote...why he kicked Bob Barr's butt, on the other hand...no idea.

If you hadn't caught on, the FLDS (in Arizona, at least) were not huge John McCain fans.

I'm not sure how this works outside of NY but who was by any chance did Nader have the third line? thus getting the highest other vote

I'm not sure about that -- Arizona's Elections web site makes it hard to tell -- but Barr beat Nader in the state, so I'm not sure that's the explanation.
