No love for Obama

Four years after Arkansans voted for John McCain over Barack Obama by one of the widest margins in the country, Arkansas voters cast even fewer ballots for President Obama. Statewide he only managed 37 percent of the presidential vote, losing all but eight counties. Only 11 counties gave the president more votes in 2012 than 2008: Chicot, Monroe, Phillips, Ashley, Jefferson, Lee, Ouachita, Lafayette, St. Francis, Mississippi and Crittenden. In 10 counties, mostly in the northern part of the state, the president garnered at least five percent fewer votes: Stone, Randolph, Sharp, Izard, Pike, Newton, Polk, Baxter, Clay and Fulton.
