Fla. Presidential Map: 2004 vs. 2008

Obama's win included some dramatic results -- nearly tying Duval and Sarasota -- for instance, and boosting the Democrats margin by 85,000 votes in Orange and 91,000 in Miami-Dade. But just as important was cutting the Republican victory margins in almost every nook of the state (he shaved 9,200 votes off Bush's margin in Collier, nearly 11,000 in Pasco, more than 16,000 in Escambia, and 6,300 in Lake County). Where Bush won 14 counties along I-4 by more than 230,000 votes, Obama won them by more than 91,000.
