It's not surprising to learn that two Southwest Minneapolis districts were where the Vote No cause was strongest. But would you have guessed that an exurban district just southwest of the Twin Cities metro cracked the top five for districts where voters were least supportive of gay marriage?

Here's the breakdown, starting with the top five Vote Yes districts.

1. 22A, far southwest corner of the state
Vote Yes = 73.1 percent

Further proof that Southwest Minnesota is an awful place to live.  The closer you get to South Dakota the dumber and meaner you get.   Sioux Falls is the worst place I've ever had the misfortune of having to go.  Ugly town filled with assholes who have slot machines in the gas stations.  What a bunch of stupid cultureless freaks.


The correlation between level of education and voter preference is astounding, isn't it?
