Canada landing Amazon is about the odds of two hat-tricks in an NHL game.

The three largest metro areas in Virginia went blue November 7th, a Democratic sweep. The state's executive legislature has been blue since 2009. Pretty much folly to lump Virginia in with conservative states these days.

I voted Atlanta. I also think Dallas, Raleigh, Chicago & Philly in that order are viable.

Sure, but were specifically talking about Amazon and companies of that caliber.

I'm not saying they won't go, no one knows but I wouldn't rank them the top of the list, primarily for the reasons listed.

This thread will be an amusing read, after Amazon makes its choice.

That's market share, not revenue. I thought GDP was based on goods sold, not wild profit predictions by the Street. If Jeff Bezos dies tomorrow and shares are cut in half out of fear and speculation, does the impact on America's GDP get cut in half? I'd argue no, but I guess it's debatable.

Mostly from the disgruntled homers that have been getting flustered at others not considering their city. I can only imagine the discourse once their cities are actually not picked.

Almost without fail you can tell what city a poster is from based on the overwhelming confidence they have about what city will be chosen.

True. But the rest of the state is red no? It's the south.
