Oregon Governor Margin 2010

The legend is in percentage terms. The map indicates the percentage voting for Chris Dudley (R) in the head-to-head with John Kitzhaber (D). Kitzhaber won with 51 percent. The statewide percentage for the Republican and Democratic candidates were roughly the same in 1986 and 2010.

It’s clear that, since 1986, Oregon’s geographic divisions have become much sharper. For example, Multnomah has become more Democratic. In addition, the Democrats have made inroads with Republican areas. The solidly Republican, in 1986, ┬ásuburban county, has gone to the Democrats.
