47. That is happening all over the country.
I live in Illinois, in a very read area. Our area voted overwhelmingly for Obama. I believe they would have done so, no matter who was running against him.

My son lives in Du Page county. It is changing a bit, but still red. His precinct went 76 percent for Obama.

I think we are seeing a phenomenon much like Reagan. It was stupid of them, but people who usually voted Democratic switched parties in large numbers for that stupid old man.

I have not picked a candidate yet. But I will be watching the voting breakdowns here very closely. I know Obama will win Illinois. I want to see exactly who votes for him in the primary. I think there will be many crossovers in all parts of the state.
