Noe Valley is Liberal

Fall Line Analytics (via Sweet Melissa) has compiled voter data (and probably more info than anyone really wants to know) about you and everyone you know.

It's no surprise that Noe Valley is mostly liberal, a little moderate and maybe just a tad conservative. Cool map, but it just enforces what a commenter on TheFrontSteps said about life here: "The people in Noe Valley simply have a fully realized liberal fantasy. The ‘charm’ of a tightly controlled social environment, while being near all of those other parts of the city that they can’t quite bear to give up…" But we knew that.

As an aside... if this map is truly accurate how did Chris Daly get elected? Twice!?

I love the purple spot at San Francisco State and the long line of surfers at Ocean Beach. Any guesses on the purple spot in southern Visitacion Valley?

I don't understand the Chris Daly question. Looks like D6 is mostly progressive (i.e., to the left of the Soviet Union), with the rest liberal and a bit moderate. Seems like his demo.

What am I missing?

Housing density is probably the key (as well as get out the vote efforts). But on the face of it, and using the labels given, the progressives look outnumbered. No real point in including Treasure Island in the math.

Mostly? Snark.
