The following places are not in the US, most are in France, but assuming they were located identically in the US, how would they vote?

I might try this later, but simply how places look can be misleading to racial makeup in the US, which is the main factor in how they vote.

1) 55% R
2) 96% D
3) 78% D
4) 79% D
5) 57% R
6) 60% D
7) same link as above
8] 59% R
9) 55% R

I generally imagined them in a Midwestern setting. All would be D on much of the West Coast, for example.

3) 78% D

Seriously? That looks like one of our standard inner ring suburbs, closer to 55-60% D.

1 - 55% R
2 - 90% D (Christ, what an ugly built environment this is.)
3 - 60% D
4 - 80% D (Nice streetscape.)
5 - 55% D
6 - 65% D
7 - dup.
8 - 55% R
9 - 60% R

This was difficult. There just aren't many American neighborhoods that look like these - narrow streets, small setbacks, small lots, etc.

1. Seems like an old West Coast port town--maybe a working-class area of Seattle. 60% D.
2. Looks inner city-ish. I'll be safe and say about 85% D.
3. Looks SoCal or Arizona-ish. Probably pretty marginal, though that depends on the Hispanic population.
4. This is obviously Paris, but I'll pretend it's an older part of New York. 80% D.
5. Clean suburbia--I'll say 55% R. Probably in the Mid-Atlantic.
6. Seems a little run-down, so 60% D.
7. See 6.
8. Sunny American Dream sort of place, maybe in the Midwest. 55% R.
9. 60% R, unless it's rural New England.

this has to be the worst way to tell how someone would vote.

If I would post pictures of NYC with out any people in it for guidance I would bet people would be more then 50% off in some parts and some over 80% off

"Worst" is a bit hyperbolic. Assume ceteris paribus and it's an interesting exercise - that there are places that deviate so far from our expectations (e.g Borough Park, much of Vermont, many Indian reservations) only makes it more interesting.

The small size of the houses lends itself to me proclaiming them all D.

Those map views don't work too well in the US. In the US, density = Democrats, and the housing stock in the US is less dense. With the possible exception of the Normandy coast road, every snap of the first six or so that I looked at, looked Dem. And Pubs really hate high rises, or multi floor buildings.

The last one looks Pub however, and maybe the penultimate one.

I was reminded of some small but dense towns on the Long Island Sound by the first one.

Based on the "Kosciusko" sign this would be a small town in NE Indiana, fairly conservative for a manufacturing area.

4. Likely D? Waterfront locations can be funny.
5. Lean D
6. Likely D
7. Toss-up
8. Strong D


Again: The small houses + lots, narrow (by comparison) streets + setbacks, and the ubiquitous on-street parking make these sites difficult to interpret. If they were located in the US, they'd be highly unusual, if not unique.
