Its like combining Dallas County with Tarrant County. If that were the case Tarrant County would bring down the Democratic vote from Dallas County by a large margin, possibly lower than the 2 votes you speak of.
His only real point was, at the time, 2 votes separated Obama and McCain. That is a notable thing, don't you think? Only 2 votes. Of course, with the rest of the precincts reporting, Obama has won by about 600 votes in Harris county.

I doubt it would come remotely close to being 50/50. Tarrant County voted for Romney with 57% & that's pretty much what Texas looks like as a whole. Tarrant County represents Texas voting patterns to a T, no pun intended.
I can't even figure out what you're raving about here.

Is your seething hatred of all things related to DFW so great that you ignore the fact that justme is referring to both DFW and Greater Houston equally, with literally no leaning or preference for one or the other?

If you removed far-flung counties from both metros, the overall percentage would be closer to 50/50. This is basic math. There is no bias here about the size of metros or anything like that. Including the far flung, super red counties, both metros went about 55/45. If you remove those far flung, super red counties, the overall percentages will have to be closer to 50/50.

Again: math.

Would it be exactly. I don't know. It would be closer though. Maybe 52/48 instead of 55/45. Which is just to show that the central part of both metros isn't as red as the complete metro data may suggest.

I suggest you take time to breath when you read the words DFW or Dallas and not let your blind hate make you write strange rants.

I found the 2012 Hudspeth County results President Map - Election 2012 - NYTimes.com :
Romney 471
Obama 379

The County is 87% Catholic with only one congregation. Odds are many of them are anti-abortion so leaned towards Romney.

It helps to have a point when going on a rant.

Well, let's take Starr County in South Texas. Both very poor, very Hispanic and very Roman Catholic (Starr County is 95% Roman Catholic). However, Starr County votes 86% for Obama and 13% for Romney. I dunno, Hudspeth just seems like an anomaly.

Default Dallas County Election Results by City

Here's how each candidate fared in Dallas County when the results are broken down by city. These figures are based on the precinct-level results from the Dallas County Elections Department as precinct lines tend to closely follow city boundaries in most areas. For a number of cities who have boundaries that extend into neighboring counties, only the results from the Dallas County portion are included.

For comparison, I posted a similar table of results after the 2008 election.

Not a big surprise though Obama did win the counties Salt Lake City and Park City are in the last time around.

Romne also won zero counties in Vermont.

It's interesting that states like Illinois, Washington and Oregon always Democrat as a whole due to strong lead in their respective big cities (rural areas remaining red) while in TX all 4 big cities vote Democrat but the state is still strongly Republican.

I would check the county elections website first. Dallas County had voting precinct maps for each city, which made it very easy to tally the numbers.
