move Montgomery County, MD to Washington DC

DC goes from 93/7 Obama to 80/20 Obama.

MD goes from 63/37 Obama to 61/39 Obama.

Same applies with Prince Georges County and Arlington/Alexandria to DC

giving Clark County NV to CA will make both California and Nevada more Republican and McCain would win Nevada 155749 to 152971

You can go more extreme than that and also annex Fairfax County (and Falls Church and Fairfax Cities) to DC. And also Howard and Charles Counties, as once MontCo and PG County are in DC, they are also more Democratic than Maryland. And you can also annex Prince William and Loudoun Counties to DC as well (and the Manassas cities).

Edit: Actually, you could then put Baltimore County in DC as well and make both more Republican. Not Baltimore City, though, as by that point DC would be less Democratic than Baltimore City. Anne Arundel and Frederick Counties could go into DC after Baltimore County, though.

I'm pretty sure moving Coös County from New Hampshire to Vermont would make both more Republican; I think moving Essex or at least some parts of the Northeast Kingdom from Vermont to New Hampshire might make both more Democratic.

Moving Cheshire County from New Hampshire to Massachusetts makes both more Republican in 2004 but not in 2008. Moving both Cheshire and Sullivan, however, makes both states more Republican in both years.

Union County moves from Kentucky to Illinois. There are several others there that could also come along for the ride.

Moving Vigo and Vermillion counties from Indiana to Illinois works to make both more Republican. Moving Gallatin or Kankakee from Illinois to Indiana makes both more Democratic.

You can take any New Hampshire County that borders Vermont and give it to Vermont to make both states more Republican.

You can also take Bennington, Vermont and give it to New York or Massachusetts. That makes both donor and recipient more Democratic.

I thought it rhymed with loose. Regardless, apparently not.

You thought I was referring to Rome-O Montague?
