I edited the long-standing part that had said "Chicago is fairly Democratic, contrasting with the rest of Illinois." Now it simply says that "Chicago is fairly Democratic."

I'll agree that it is the most Democratic city in Illinois by numbers and percentages. But, from what I've seen, Cook County is only slightly behind Los Angeles County, California for having the MOST Democratic votes in the country. In comparison, it might seem that Illinois is not heavily Democratic outside of Chicago. In actuality, Illinois' population centers outside of Chicagoland such as Peoria, Champaign, Rock Island/Moline, or the east suburbs of St. Louis... are all fairly Democratic. Check out the extra features on to get a county by county map of the 2004 or 2000 election and you can see the "blue" concentrated in various areas about the state.

I think what is probably more accurate is to say that "Chicago is fairly liberal, contrasting with the rest of Illinois." However, I don't know how you could prove something like that so I'm not going to add that in. RobShepard 00:59, 02 Oct 2006 (CDT)
