See below for nifty screen shots.
In Florida (where my sister lives) for example, Obama had 43% while McCain only held 46%. That's only 3% more republican votes than democratic ones...
And in Georgia (where my parents live) McCain holds exactly 50%, while Obama had almost 44%. That's only 6% difference.
The states with the biggest difference between the candidates were (according to my clicking) Oklahoma and Rhode Island. Oklahoma had McCain at 57% and Obama at almost 28% (that's a 29% difference).
Now, I'm not saying that McCain is going to lose in GA or FL, because that would be a lot to hope for... And neither state is considered a "battleground state" or anything.
However - it is SO interesting to me to see how closely (almost evenly) divided each of those states are... I guess I had assumed that Georgia and Florida were as one sided as Oklahoma... And thought that my progressive family and friends were like little islands of Hope within a big Red sea...
But, take heart, my family and friends who live there -- You are surrounded by progressives!! (Or at least a refreshingly high number of Obama supporters...) Yay!
