I cannot foretell what this means for the future of the Republic, but this data is interesting to me.
1) Right now, President Obama has won re-election by a margin of approximately 2.9 million votes nationwide.
2) In America's three largest cities, Los Angeles (Obama plus 952,000 in LA County), Chicago (Obama plus 960,000 in Cook County), and New York (Obama plus 1.3 million in the five boroughs), Obama is up a total of 3.45 million.
3) Thus, but for LA, Chicago, and New York, Romney is winning the rest of the country.
Is that good for America when three cities essentially deliver 104 electoral votes to Democrats automatically?
