I find some of those statitics interesting, because on an online map somewhere I saw alot of counties with a high population of African-Americans, but McCain still won the popular votes. Did you notice that?

Oh, here is that link... this is South Carolina....

South Carolina - County results - County results- msnbc.com

Here is Tennessee.... Shelby (Memphis) and Davidson (Nashville) County were about the only two that won Obama, while the rest of the state was McCain. However, those two counties have the highest population of the blacks... I think Shelby County is like 52% black and the city of Memphis is 62% black, but I see other counties that were mostly black that McCain had won.

Mississippi is one I really found interesting... note the counties around Jackson... one county was 70% Obama, while the neighboring county was 76% McCain. However, the 70% Obama county is 65% black, and the McCain County is 78% white. Also, I thought that most of southeast Mississippi was mostly African-American population, but Caucasion is the higher population in southeast Mississippi, even on the Gulf coastal counties.

Columbia is more liberal. Don't let some of the Greenville forum members fool you. Greenville is very conservative.

I love Greenville. I don't like it when things are too liberal or conservative for that matter, the conservatism everyone talks about in Greenville doesn't bother me.

I don't think anyone wants to fool anybody. Greenville forumers convey the City of Greenville as progressive, not liberal. There is a difference.

It has more stuff. Especially considering their is no major college presence or state government. All local leadership going after what they want. If that's called conservatism then I'm on board.

Well that's settled then. Columbia is the more liberal city, which is what the subject of this thread is all about. Now we can move on.
