Post Election Analysis

I've read a few brief post-election analysis pieces on various blogs and newspapers.

From this post, a look at where Republican support actually increased in this election, compared with where Democrat support increased. They are two telling graphics.

Similarily, from the Calgary Grit, an entry on the persistent divide of the nation. It's still split right down the middle, almost 50/50. But, when you look at somewhere like Alabama:

"This election confirms the persistence of considerable racial divisions.

Look at exit poll numbers from Alabama (it was similar across the south).

White voters 88-10 for McCain
Black voters 98-2 for Obama"

Either way, only 70+ days left of Bush. Let the countdown begin.
