I found a cool new site, that allows you to upload precinct data files for some states onto Google Earth. On Google Earth, you can even control click the precinct to get the Kerry percentage of the vote, and the total number of votes cast. Clicking on Berkeley gets really "ugly." Some precincts were around 96% Kerry. It must be vote fraud! Tongue Here is a snapshot of the Alameda County area, just for sbane.

And moving on to BRTD's beloved homeland, here is a map for him. Notice that odd little pink dot in the middle of all of that dark blue.

Interesting maps, though unsurprising.

As I warned Sbane however, you might need to upgrade Google Earth, and your computer will need to have a lot of memory. The data file is naturally huge.

Cool site, although it does have a good number of data errors.

There's a web browser version of every map (like the Minneapolis one you posted).  It's neat, because you can enter an address and it zooms in too.

A warning that it doesn't properly work very well on Firefox.  When you scroll or click, Firefox gets the wrong coordinates and things get screwy.

One thing of interest, which points out the more macro GOP syndrome, is that I think Edina is the highest income town in Minnesota, and notice how marginal it is, on the twin city map.

Edina City

Kerry 16,090   
Bush  15,277   

Actually, Edina has a median household income of 71K, and that is beat by Minnetonka with 75K, and Plymouth with 74K. The highest going away with North Oaks (oddly enough in hyper Dem Ramsey County), which clocks in at 162K in median household income, and North Oaks, bless it,  still has a "class consciousness."  It is probably  because it is gated, and BRTD can't get in to agitprop the place. Tongue

Minnetonka

Kerry 17,790
Bush 15,317

Plymouth

Kerry 19,679
Bush 21,652

North Oaks

Kerry 1,197
Bush 1,750

Not a bad guess...
Wiki:

"Formerly a gated community that now posts private access signage, all land is owned by homeowners with the North Oaks Home Owners Association maintaining all roads, plowing, parks, facilities, and recreation trails. Each homeowner's property extends halfway into the street. (...) The City owns no property. As such the Metropolitan Council has no jurisdiction over the city's comprehensive plan..."

Thanks for leaving Santa Clara County out of that image. Much appreciated. Wink

There's nothing odd about North Oaks at all. The only reason Ramsey County is hyper-Dem is that about half the county is the city of St. Paul and it's not large enough (geographically) to take in many Republican suburbs. If Hennepin County were the same geographic size as Ramsey county, it'd be even more Democratic, but it's moderated by the hyper-GOP areas in the western part of it.

I'm also surprised Torie missed Eden Prairie in high income areas.

I'm proud that my Kiawah Island precinct voted 73% for Bush.

That somehow got me to look up Edisto. (Must be because I've read the book by Padgett Powell.)
The island has two precincts, and gee, is it obvious where the rich white newcomers live.
One precinct 75+ Bush. That's Edisto Beach.
One precinct 60-75 Kerry. That's the bulk of the island.

Wiki points out that Edisto Beach is an incorporated town and in a different county from the remainder of the island (Colleton vs Charleston). Also, that its 650 people are 96% white, while the 2600 people on the remainder of the island are 70% black. Who'd've thought it? Tongue

My precinct is 60-75 Kerry. Not surprising. But it was interesting that there wasn't a single Bush precinct in San Francisco.

Eden Prairie voted 55-43 for Bush 2004. But yes, it's median income was about 9K higher than Minnetonka (84K to 75K). still prosaic in California money in the "right" zip  codes (heck my little suburb, and it is not Laguna Beach (Dem) or Newport Beach (R), so not top tier in my county, did "better" than that. Hennipen had about 30 precincts that voted for Bush by a 20% or more margin. The hyper GOP areas in Hennepin were rather thin on the ground in 2004.

When we in Plymouth try our best to be anti-elitist, we often cite "Eden Prairie" as the city that "at least we're not..."

Has there been a Republican precinct in San Fran since the 70's? (I'd imagine there could have been some in 1984 where Reagan got 31% of the county vote)

Yes even the financial district is not conservative enough.

Reagan may have gotten a few areas, and I imagine Ford got a bunch. He cracked 40% in San Francisco.
