Precinct analysis: Some other views

I'm going to take a holiday break from the precinct data, but don't worry, I've got more stuff in the works. And yes, Peter Wang, I promise to do an analysis of the Steve Radack-Dexter Handy race. In the meantime, here are a few other views of the data:

Marc Campos has some pie charts that show voting behavior in Harris County in precincts that are 70% or more Anglo, black, and Hispanic. As someone who's been digging through precinct data for days and days now, I don't think it told me much that I didn't already know, but it's interesting to look at anyway. If you prefer pictures to all the numbers I've been throwing at you, you'll appreciate these charts, so check them out.

Meanwhile, new BOR front-pager Katherine Haenschen takes a look at the counties that had the greatest increase in Democratic votes over 2004. I covered some of this earlier, but she goes into some more depth, and sees some new things. I'm glad the idea that Democrats made gains in places you wouldn't have expected is being more widely recognized. She's got more number-crunching in the works, so keep an eye on it.

And finally, Greg breaks down the Harris County vote into City of Houston/non-City of Houston components. A bigger share of the vote inside city limits like we saw this year would be a very nice thing to continue to have.
