  •  The two elections really did have (0+ / 0-)

    nothing to do with each other.  Same with amendment 2 when it came to requiring photo ID to vote.  That one failed because the Twin Cities and Greater MN teamed up to curb-stomp the shit out of it, while the marriage amendment was the Twin Cities plus the suburbs.  And the Presidential follows an even less black/white voting pattern in Minnesota.

    Really can't help but wonder what other type of election ballot has the ability to show these differences.  Wonder if maybe it's just Minnesotans being highly educated voters and voting exactly how one would logically expect.

      The correlation is fairly high, as jeffmd says.  But many simultaneous elections are correlated far beyond even that.
