In a continuing analysis of the historic national election last week, the U-T San Diego has developed an inter-active electoral map.
This after-election pencil-pushing has uncovered President Obama’s best precincts – and they were in San Diego’s urban core: Golden Hill, Logan Heights, Barrio Logan … and Ocean Beach.
OBcean voters gave Obama large percentages. He also did exceptionally well around UCSD and in the South Bay.
Here’s more of the report – outlining the racial make-up of Obama and Romney San Diego supporters:
The precincts where Obama led the race have an estimated demographic makeup of 43 percent white, 35 percent Hispanic, 13 percent Asian, 6 percent black and 3 percent other, including persons of multiple races, Pacific islanders and American Indians.
Romney’s precincts had an estimated demographic breakdown of 69 percent white, 17 percent Hispanic, 8 percent Asian, 2 percent black and 4 percent other.
