Voting Differences Between Inner Suburbs And Exurbs

Political party affiliation isrelated to distance from city center.

"The passions of presidential politics have moved pollsters to divide the country into "red" Republican states and "blue" Democratic ones. And just as easily can the Washington region be divided.

The area's "blue" precincts are clustered at its center: city dwellings, working-class suburban tract houses and well-groomed prosperous neighborhoods not too far from the federal center of power voted overwhelmingly for Al Gore.

the outer areas are bright red for President Bush, where subdivisions, many with large lots, have risen from farmland."
