Obama’s 81% New York City Vote Tally Sets Record Since 1898

Jan. 10 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama won more support from New York City in November’s election than any White House candidate in more than 100 years, according to a final tally of votes.
Obama beat Republican challenger Mitt Romney by 81 percent to 18 percent in the nation’s largest city, according to a certified vote count released Dec. 31 by the state board of elections. Some New York ballots were counted late in part because of complications caused by Hurricane Sandy.
Obama’s share of the vote is the best showing by a presidential nominee in New York since its five boroughs were consolidated in 1898, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from the state elections board and the 2005 books “America at the Polls” and “The Encyclopedia of New York State.”
The results underscore New York’s decades-long status as a Democratic bastion where most residents are racial and ethnic minorities. Of the city’s 8.2 million residents, 29 percent are Hispanic, 23 percent are non-Hispanic black and 13 percent are non-Hispanic Asian, according to 2011 estimates from the Census Bureau.

2. He even won Staten Island too

Staten voted narrowly for Clinton and Gore in 1996 and 2000, but swung big for Bush 2004, 56%. I had heard that many NYC police and firemen live there (9/11 effect, maybe?).

Then it voted by a more narrow margin for McCain in 2008.

6. Rurthermore: "President Obama is More Popular Now than During His First Term"

....And not only that, but a president who is, despite all these attacks, is increasingly popular. Gallup reports that Obama’s current approval rating is 56 percent – or seven points higher than “the average of his monthly approval ratings (49%) for the first 48 months of his administration, between January 2009 and December 2012.”
http://www.politicususa.com/president-obama-popular-term.html

And consider this: “Five of the seven U.S. presidents re-elected since World War II had lower average job approval ratings in their second than in their first term.”


In spite of all the shite from rw and the profiteering, smearing, left.

10. Well, maybe not a carrot. I'm guessing the horse appreciated the speech, though.

And the picture is from him in NYC.
