Demographics for US Presidential Election 2008


The voter demographics for yesterday’s US Presidential election make interesting reading.

The clear splits along Southern States vs Eastern, voter racial group, city-dweller versus rural etc. are brought into sharp contrast. The religious beliefs of the voters also played a key part in the result. As did gun ownership, although some might call this a religion for some.

One of the decisive splits between the candidates was in their appeal to first time voters, with Obama capturing 68% of new voters.

The exit poll was reported in The Guardian newspaper.

There is also an interesting online background briefing to President Obama’s life leading to the White House HERE.
