The areas like Alexandria in Va. tend to go blue. The yuppie areas right around DC.
Fairfax seems to be suburban republican territory. Its a difficult area to judge because of all the Government employees as well.

Fairfax County USED to be suburban republican. It's now solid Democrat territory.

The government got larger under the Bush administration. Bush and the republicans have gone on a spending frenzy. The republican party are the new liberals. Obama will have no oil lobbiest in his white house. The budget was balanced and we had a surplus under Bill Clinton. Now its sqaundered away by dumb W and we are in so much debt today.

well, all your credibility just shot like a cannon out the window. I can tell how solidly democrat fairfax county is every time I go visit my parents and see ron paul signs everywhere. when I see an obama sign, I will let you know.

What demographic change took place? I know its the home of Exxonmobil and would figure that would add a bunch of red.

I grew up in Morris County NJ which is 30 mi west of NYC. That is heavily Republican. I thought fairfax was similar.

I don't know a single democrat in NOVA. to me, the area tends to be more libertarian minded.

Dude, if i were you i wouldn't attempt to open my mouth unless i lived here.....you seem to be confusing Prince William County with Fairfax & Loudoun county.

Asians--with the exception of Philipino Americans--have always voted Democrat, and in NOVA they tend to be secular, professional, college-educated, and VERY liberal.

I guarantee Obama will win Northern Virginia in a landslide by a larger margin than even Kerry won in 2004. I'm talking about Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax Counties.
