Obamas Wins From Foxhall to Fort Dupont

Our friends at DCist have a great map showing that Barack Obama won every precinct in the District. DCist blogger Adam Bailey writes:

“Though the map may appear as if Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) did well in many Northwest neighborhoods, she only managed to keep Obama under 60 percent of the vote in ten precincts. Her strongest showing was Precinct 3, the neighborhood including the Watergate, some G.W. housing, and the Foggy Bottom Historic District; but she still lost to Obama in a 275-243 vote.”

Hillary also did well up around Foxhall and Glover Park, but Bailey advises not to read into the demographics of those communities too deeply:

“We’ll leave you readers to interpret the results, but recommend against the folly of divvying the results into class, social, or racial categories. District voters are largely in agreement about their preferred presidential candidate, and braying about the difference between one neighborhood that voted 65 percent for Obama and another that voted 72 percent would be silly.”

It’s an impressive map, and props to Bailey for pulling it together. Below is the screen shot, but if you want more analysis visit DCist or his mashup on Google Maps.

    We don’t need Ohio, Texas, D.C., Maryland, or Virginia to get to the White House. The Hillary campaign has run a hard race to the White House and we don’t intend to let Ohio or Texas or any minority states stand in our way reguardless of their vote. We have already won the big states and we intend to invoke hole heartedly the votes of Florida. We tried to win the supporters of John Edwards. Unfortunately we did not win the supporters of John Edwards, but as you can see we didn’t need them to win the big states and we will not need them in the future to win the White House. The Clinton campaign started this race as winners, favored to be in the white house because we are not trying to change the face of america nor it’s foundation our pass leaders worked so hard to establish. We know what our opponent is trying to do and we can not let this happen. America is not broken, just our leadership. Everyone in america has been treated fair for over two hundred years and if they are unhappy with their current status or the economy then I’m sure they can find pleasure in being in america. When Senator Clinton is elected president she will address all issues of concern.

    “Everyone in america has been treated fair for over two hundred years ”

    Ummmm … so we forget about that little thing called slavery?

    I’m not saying that is a reason to vote for or against anyone… just that your statement is ludicrous.
