OK

are offered in his Saturday New York Times column, Election Data Dive, which you might find of interest.

For example, He tells us that of the 25 state Obama won (not including FL, not yet called by the Times, exit  polls were done in 22 (also not in DC), of the 24 won by Romney, only 8 had exit polls.

A sample of some data:

• Romney won nine of the 11 states that were once in the Confederacy.

• Romney also won eight of the 10 states with the lowest population density: Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Nebraska and Utah. Obama won New Mexico and Nevada. (Hello. Hello. Hello. Is there an echo in here?)

• Romney’s biggest margin of victory came in Utah, home of the Mormon Church. Utah was one of three states in which Romney won every county. The other two were West Virginia and Oklahoma. Obama won every county in four states: Hawaii, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont.

What is of greater interest to me is that Obama got his lowest percentage among white, 10%,  in the stat with the highest percentage of blacks , MS (36%), while he won the white vote outright in states with low percentages of blacks, winning 57% of whites in ME (95% white) and MA (86% white), while also winning majorities of whites in IA (93%), NH (93%), OR  (88), CT (79%), and Washington State (76%).

There is more data you can read in the column.  For those who like to analyze, you have data to feed your hunger, you have input.  

Go to it.
