Baseball cities in the 2004 election

 

By Roger Weber

 

Although not necessarily proving anything, this is an interesting look at how each city with a major league team voted in the 2004 election. Remember, all big cities tend to have more Democratic than Republican voters. 

 

Numbers under "Bush" and "Kerry" are in thousands of voters and are taken from CNN Election Results from the counties and metropolitan areas of major cities.
