This ones been floating around the last few days. Nothing really surprising, but funny to see it presented like this.

Great...lets see how Obama does, his track record has not been very good...he will raise taxes for the $250,000+ earners, not cut nearly enough spending and then realize he has to raise taxes for almost everyone else.

Dem party has always been made up of highly educated liberals in the Northeast and on the West Coast.

It is a good illustration of the elitism of the party- Thanks!

Shocking results ! LOL.

Yeah its those over educated Northeast and West Coast elitist liberals who are out of touch. Fox News and Rush Limbaugh said so !

Republicans just don't get it.

While not surprising at all, it is interesting in that some of the wealthiest and highest earning states in the nation (CT, NJ, NY, MA, MD, etc.) are all voting to have their taxes raised.

It's flawed.  The suburbs in MA voted Republican; but they get outvoted by Brockton, Boston, Lowell and Springfield.  Same thing in CT; I'm sure Avon and Simsbury voted different than Bridgeport, New Haven and Hartford.

Good point.

NYC is an interesting one because you literally hit all levels of wealth.

Essentially this...

However, the MA suburbs still have a fair amount of democratic voters.

Not true. According to Boston.com's town-by-town election results, the 25 richest towns in MA voted Democratic (18 going to Obama-7 to Romney), including 4 of the top 5, 9 of the top 10, 13 of the top 15 and 16 of the top 20. The "W's" - Weston, Wayland and Wellesley - all went to Obama. The results still favor Obama if you remove Brookline (no. 11) and Newton (19) from the list, two very large towns with overwhelming Obama wins.

I moved out a while ago, but I grew up around there so I'm going to disagree with you - I bet Avon & Simsbury went for Obama....

Interesting.  Longmeadow, where Springfield's wealthy live, also went Obama.

If you look at the details for the Senate race, instead of the Presidential race -- you'll see a lot more red on the map.

A more palatable candidate in the Senate race. A republican who was using Obama as a positive attribute in his commercials.

It's an interesting chart on it's face , and I remember seeing a similar chart after the last election, but if you do a deeper dive on the numbers you will see that the results are not what you think.
Romney got 59% of the white vote and whites constituted 85% of his total vote. Approx. 34% of whites have college degrees compared to 17 % of Blacks and 11% of hispanics.Asians actually have a higher% of college gegrees- 49%- and they went for Obama but they only constitute 3% of the vote. Results vary from state to state but that kind of chart is a cute trick but not conclusive of anything.

Wellesley, Weston, Wayland and Longmeadow are all probably close to 90% white (some of them greater than 90%), with the bulk of the remaining 10% being Asian.

     It isn't just about degrees.  The people in those Red states --among other pathologies-- have the most gunshot deaths, largest % prison populations, out-of-wed births,suicide, obesity, smoking rates, executions, divorce. 

   Would I rather have the pop' of NH voting for me than WV? Yes I would.

But, their taxes are lower, so they have that going for them.

They also have a higher ratio of tax dollars received than sent. So much for not liking handouts.
