[note–10.57 am– At this point, all GOP Candidates except McCain are essentially mathematically eliminated. The GOP Primary is over.]

One last thing I have noticed…Huckabee and Clinton seem to win in the same geographic regions, and Obama and McCain seem to win the same general geographic regions…to whit, these maps below:

Washington Post

Hillary and Huckabee take the western-most counties, and Obama and MCain take the eastern-most counties, setting up a rural vs. urban and suburban thing. Something to keep in mind for this fall.
