In Philadelphia President Obama won the city with 85% of the vote, but in 13 precincts he won 99% or more. This vote is mostly due to the large African American populations in these wards. Obama carried these same ones in 2008.
Even though many voters were not as enthusiastic to vote this year, these wards in Philadelphia managed to be just as excited to vote for Obama.
“In this election, you had to point out to the people what was at stake. And in many cases, they felt that the Romney doctrine was not going to favor the working man,” said Edgar “Sonny” Campbell.
