...and yet they still didn't run away with it like everyone thought they would.
That's my point.

I've only done a bit of looking into this, but it would appear from a cursory view that much of Obama's support came from urban areas whereas the rural areas of many states seemed to swing toward McCain.
If you look at the map of North Carolina, you can see McCain red all over the place with Obama blue only in the areas where the state's largest three cities are located.
Anyone find anything on this . . . a breakdown by urban vs. rural.
If it does end up being rural vs urban, it would be interesting to disect the hows and whys this happened.
