Which Part of Richmond Turned Out the Most Votes for McAuliffe? 

Terry McAuliffe didn’t beat Ken Cuccinelli quite as handily as some polls predicted. Never at doubt was that the Democrat would easily take Richmond. City-wide, McAuliffe won with 73 percent of the vote to Republican Ken Cuccinelli’s 17 percent, and Libertarian Robert Sarvis’s 9.3 percent.

McAuliffe may have won all but three of 66 precincts, but that doesn’t mean he is equally well loved across the city. Here’s a map shaded to show the relative intensity of support for McAuliffe across Richmond. Click any precinct to see the breakdown of votes.

(In case anyone's curious, here's a map showing which Richmond precincts most heavily favored Libertarian Robert Sarvis.)
