Why did NE NJ have a hard swing to Obama in 2012?  I am referring to Hudson County and Bergen County.  Was it due to a swing to Obama by whites caused by Sandy?  , a depressed white turnout and a big turnout among minorities?

Result of approval of Obama's handling of the hurricane, and a longer amount of time for voters to turn out (voting was extended through Friday)

A little bit of a swing after his handling of Sandy and minority turnout in North Jersey.  No more.  No less.  I had said that it would be 55-44 Obama in NJ.  Sandy happened, and I said this would cause a 3% swing.  I was dead on.
