Explaining the Election Results
Maybe the results from New Jersey and Virginia (as well as Westchester and possibly Nassau counties in New York) mean that suburban Republicans are back and the results from upstate New York mean that rural areas might be trending Democratic.
The theory that the discrepancy is about a Civil War in the Republican party doesn't make sense since upstate New York is not exactly a “Metrocon” region.
On the other hand, maybe it's Canadian illegal aliens voting at the Canadian border.
On the gripping hand, it might be a mistake to read too much into a handful of results.
