Election day noodling, where Obama got his votes

President Obama got 58 percent of the vote in Arkansas and, I think I remember correctly, carried a majority of the counties.

But this number crunching struck me:

Obama beat John Wolfe in the primary 95,385-68,108, a margin of 27,277:

Obama carried these counties by the following margins:

Pulaski — 19,905-3,190 (16,715)

Washington — 8,502-1,613 (6,889)

Jefferson — 6,557-2,122 (4,435)

That made the Obama margin in those three counties 28,039, bigger than what he ended with for the entire state.
