Oklahoma has replaced Utah as the most Republican state, presidentially, despite Obama's shout-outs to Sen. Tom Coburn. Oklahoma is the only state in which Obama did not win a single county. (Except for bright red Alaska, America's Mars, where there are no counties!)

I was surprised that Manhattan and San Francisco gave Obama a mere 85 percent of the vote each.
