LOL Trump won the white vote in every county in Texas, except Travis. Hilarious. Austin is the blueberry in tomato soup.


I see about 5 other counties in the south where Trump didn't win the white vote. One in Atlanta, a couple that looks like the Raleigh-Durham area, and then south Florida. Trump killed it among whites in the south.

The assumption that only whites can be liberal is the epitome of racism. Also, counties don't really show the results at the city municipal level.

No one made that assumption. If anything, I think the assumption is that the liberal urban "elite", emphasis on the elite part, is predominately white, which is why that poster posted the non-Hispanic white vote. And while there are indeed elite people of color on the coasts/urban areas (perhaps the only areas in this country), they are far, far outnumbered by elite whites. I think it was a fair point to post the non-Hispanic white vote.

Read the post above mine and see what he's implying. He's made several remarks about it before, saying minorities who vote Democrat aren't liberal.

I get that. But you probably don't know the posting history of Mr. Gaylord Focker. Under his logic, only whites can be liberal, regardless of "elite" status.

Philadelphia sticks out as out of place to me. Philly blows away most of the cities in Fortresses. Philly has more "liberal elite" than Seattle and is competitive with Chicago and Boston. I'd move Philly to "Powerhouses."
