A Map of The 2016 Transit Referendum, Correlated with the Presidential Vote

I’ve always tried to avoid the topic of politics on this blog. I’ve long felt that the core values of Urban Indy could appeal to a wide spectrum of the general public. With that in mind, I decided it still would be interesting to see how many Indianapolis precincts split their tickets in 2016. A general narrative is that Democrats are usually friendlier to transit than Republicans, but this precinct map shows that there are plenty of exceptions to that narrative within Indianapolis:

This is just a subset of who won in each precinct. There are also variations within each precinct that cut both ways. Anecdotally, I know of several Gary Johnson voters who were also transit voters. Cities contain multitudes.
