      There are actually very few precincts out there that are not overwhelmingly black and still in the 80-90% range. Most traditional Urban liberal districts are around 70-ish.

        many precincts in the inner east side of Portland, Oregon, are 60-90% white and vote 80-90+% Democratic.  Precincts in Eugene and Ashland are generally above 90% white and some are that Democratic, too.
