altmire hart retrospective
In the past I put up a map of the results from the first Hart-Altmire race. No reason to repeat that in itself so I wondered where Altmire gained on Hart. Altmire won 56-44 which was a decent improvement from the 52-48 results just 2 yeares earlier. Here is a map of the the differences between the 2008 race compared to 2006. Honestly I don't see much pattern in it, which would just mean Atmire gained a bit of ground across several groups. An incumbency bump, Obama coat-tails, some intra-regional migration artifacts, or something else? I dunno.
