Southern White Men Are Not Fans Of Barack Obama

Matt Yglesias posted this map: (via atrios)

When you combine it with this chart, it's not pretty picture for the south. As Atrios would say, there's something about Obama that white men in the south can't stand.

Thinking... thinking...


  1. interesting data, but wow, what happened to coloring that map?! it goes from purple to blue, passing a bunch of other colors on the way, who thought that was a good way to convey that information? also it doesnt look like hawaiian blue even shows up on the key?

    anyways, still lolling at the solid south reappearing once again, united in protest against black people

  2. surprising turnout from Alaska.
