Virginia by the Numbers: Obama v. the GOP


I've been crunching the numbers, and there are more than a few stunning results out of Virginia tonight:

  • Obama received nearly 140,000 more votes than all of the Republicans combined.
  • Obama finished third among Republicans. His 47,000 Republican votes are more than six times what Ron Paul received, and match one quarter of McCain's haul.
  • Independents flocked to Obama over McCain 145,000 to 38,000 -- that's closing in on 4:1.
