1. Durham County checking in here.

We went 75.7% for Obama.

Is there a more blue Obama county in the country?

7. Don't know how he got that list, interesting article though

There are lots of counties in the US where Obama received 80+% of the vote and I don't see them listed.

The red/blue divide is more complicated than he makes it sound though. Down here in deep South Texas (McAllen-Brownsville) many people do own guns and pickups and like to hunt, say ma'am and sir (or señor), but Obama still got about 70% of the vote anyways.

5. Guilford County did it again!

The fact that NC wasn't a blowout for Rmoney gives me hope for our future.
