Posted from my iPhone. I find it hard to believe that 59 voting districts voted straight Obama and not one single vote for Romney.

That means there was voter fraud. In some places, Obama got over 100% of the vote. The last person who got those type numbers was Saddam Hussein.

We're getting this same story in Ohio. I smell voter fraud.

Cleveland is basically ruled by the Democratic Party. It doesn't suprise me that some precincts in the city voted 100% Obama.

Don't know about this election, but if I'm not mistaken, in the state of Oklahoma in 2008, not a single precinct or county went for Obama. Bet this year was the same.

So what should I infer from that?

Looking at the data provided by your link (which I'm assuming is accurate), I don't see anything out of the ordinary for urban Philadelphia.

I find it difficult to believe that anyone would find implausible that entirely black or Latino neighborhoods in our urban centers would avoid giving a single vote to someone like Mitt Romney. On the one hand, many of you whine about 96% of blacks voting for Obama, but then out of the other side of your mouths you disbelieve that particular neighborhoods that are almost entirely black took it up a whopping four percentage points.
