Surprise States

Personally, I’m shocked that Obama carried Virginia, especially knowing the generally conservative attitude of the areas outside of the DC suburbs. I think that what saved him wasn’t so much Pennsylvania, but the fact that he carried a good part of the Upper Midwest, such as Minnesota and Wisconsin. Also, New Mexico, for what it’s worth, was a pretty good pickup by Possibly-New-President Obama.


One response to “Surprise States

  1. I think New Mexico was the hispanic vote perhaps?? The young vote had a lot to do with it, I’m guessing. (Not New Mexico, but overall.)
