2006: Colorado passes gay marriage ban


Data here

Worst performances versus Bush
Jackson -27.7
Rio Blanco -12.0%
Kiowa -8.5%
Routt -8.2%
Custer -7.7%

Best performances versus Bush
Costilla +97.5%
Conejos +56.1%
Las Animas +43.4%
Pueblo +43.2%
Denver +28.6%

If anyone can explain to me why Jackson County voted like this:

President - 76% Bush
Domestic partnerships - 76% no
Gay marriage ban - 55% yes

...I'd be interested in hearing it.

This is kind of neat: the user-made Colorado maps are on the first page for a Google result for Colorado election results.

Anyway...

2000: Oregon narrowly avoids banning ballroom dancing classes, or whatever a ban on encouraging homosexuality in public schools would do


Data here.  An interesting examination of how attitudes about homosexuality aren't entirely partisan line, and how the inland west isn't nearly as conservative Christian as many people assume based on its Republicanness.

Oregon: Difference between Measure 9 performance and 2000 Bush performance
Grant -19.2%
Wallowa -18.9%
Sherman -16.3%
Gilliam -15.6%
Union -14.5%
Harney -12.9%
Lake -12.2%
Benton -11.6%
Baker -9.8%
Malheur -7.6%
Klamath -7.4%
Wheeler -6.8%
Deschutes -5.6%
Morrow -5.5%
Washington -5.0%
Umatilla -4.4%
Jackson -3.6%
Polk -1.0%
Douglas -0.3%
Yamhill -0.2%
Crook +0.5%
Jefferson +0.5%
Curry +2.0%
Coos +2.0%
Wasco +2.1%
Marion +2.3%
Clackamas +2.7%
Josephine +2.9%
Linn +3.2%
Clatsop +4.7%
Lane +4.8%
Tillamook +6.2%
Hood River +6.6%
Lincoln +7.2%
Multnomah +16.2%
Columbia +21.7%

Columbia County makes sense - it's a working-class area with socially conservative, economically liberal leans.  What's interesting is that this measure performed relatively better in areas that hardly seem to have those sort of leans (liberal Multnomah, liberal touristy Lincoln and Hood River) - the only explanation I can offer there is old-school, elderly Democrats (especially in Lincoln) and Hispanics (Hood River).  And the measures tend to perform relatively better than Dems in ultra-liberal areas and relatively worse than Republicans in ultra-conservative ones.

What really surprised me is how poorly it performed in the Columbia River counties, which have a Democratic union(?) tradition.  They were solidly Republican by 2000.  Another thing that I just can't explain.

Coos has a solid economically liberal union base, but it's not socially conservative.  The socially conservative union base has since become Republican.  It's a moderate county.  It's pretty much a standard 55% Republican, 45% Democratic county at this point.  It's lost the interestingness that came from being a union county.

Btw, could you explain the patterns in this map?



I might be able to, if I knew what it was a map of.  Tongue

Ohhh, I remember talking to Bob about this.

No - I have NO idea.  It's among the weirdest maps I've ever seen.  Malheur County is literally the last county in Oregon I would have expected to vote no.  The single most confusing election result I've ever seen.

1992's infamous Measure 9:



Would have amended the state Constitution to read:

All governments in Oregon may not use their monies or properties to promote, encourage or facilitate homosexuality, pedophilia, sadism or masochism. All levels of government, including public education systems, must assist in setting a standard for Oregon's youth which recognizes that these behaviors are abnormal, wrong, unnatural and perverse and they are to be discouraged and avoided.

It lost 56-44.

Bob, two quick questions:

1. Where did you get those county results?  (I can do a quick data upload so we can see sexy percentages and stuff)

2. Anything you can tell me about why the Columbia River counties are so Republican if they aren't exactly fully right-winged on either social or economic issues?  More of an institiutional Republican shift, kind of like in Coos County?

I don't know much about them, but in my summer driving tour (after which I'll have been to every county in the state except for San Juan), I'll be right across the stateline.  It doesn't seem to share much in common with our side of the River.

From a print source. I don't have access to the data at the moment. Sad

Environmental issues probably play a big role.

Hmm, interesting.  Logging areas?  I've always wondered if areas that are hyper-Republican due to anti-environmentalism (like Forks, WA) are also very socially conservative.  I guess it isn't necessarily so.

Looks like about half the states have had a statewide referendum on gay marriage. I made a list earlier this thread about the most gay friendly county in each state. Does anyone want to take a stab at guessing for the other states, what would be each state's best county for opposing gay marriage bans?

CT: New Haven, maybe?  Hartford?
DE: New Castle
FL: Broward?
IA: Johnson?
IL: Cook, obviously
IN: Monroe
ME: Cumberland
MA: Berkshire
MN: Ramsey
NE: Already voted in 2000, and Douglas
NH: Probably Cheshire
NJ: Essex, maybe Hudson

NC: Durham?

RI: Providence
VT: Windham
WA: San Juan
WV: No real idea
WY: Teton, obviously

I compared the results of these bans with the results of the Kerry/Bush election. I calculated the difference between ban support and Bush support, using large counties (over 100,000 votes in the 2004 Pres. election). I've broken it down by state:

Note: Mississippi, Montana, and the Dakotas don't have any counties with over 100,000 votes. Also, I don't have the maps for Arkansas, Kentucky, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Bump for comparison to the Democratic primary results. It appears the vast majority of counties that voted against a ban on gay marriage, are voting for Obama.

It looks like Obama picked a lot of the pro-gay counties that voted for Bush:

Maricopa, AZ - McCain
Ouray, CO - Obama
Latah, ID - Obama
Bennett, SD - McCain
Brookings, SD - Obama
Custer, SD - McCain
Fall River, SD - McCain
Hughes, SD - McCain
Kingsbury, SD - McCain
Lawrence, SD - McCain
Lyman, SD - McCain
Marshall, SD - Obama
Stanley, SD - McCain
Grand, UT - Obama
Summit, UT - Obama

-------

Can anyone explain those SD counties?

Gap between no and Obama in California. Smaller gaps seemed to be in low population counties, where the megachurches aren't so active. The Mormons in Mono like gay marriage.

South Dakota's (like Arizona's) banned domestic partnerships and civil unions.  Those kind of bans just aren't really viable outside of conservative states anymore.
