The percentage of Charleston County voters who voted for Obama

When Charleston County went blue for Barack Obama in November with 55 percent of the vote, it was a thrill for local Democrats who pressed a massive voter turnout machine to the limits (and by limits we mean until the polls were closed on Election Day). But Republicans shouldn't pack their bags just yet. A number of Charleston County communities supported John McCain — he just couldn't make up the difference on the peninsula and in North Charleston. It would seem that in several areas, particularly on the coast, Republicans still hold a lead.

Areas Barack Obama Won:



Christ Church

Deer Park

Edisto Island




North Charleston

St. Paul

Wadmalaw Island

Areas John McCain Won:

Folly Beach

James Island

Johns Island

Kiawah Island

Isle of Palms

Mt. Pleasant

St. Andrews

Seabrook Island

Sullivan's Island
