Obama Holds Big Lead In Campaign Offices

The Daily Beast has a nice interactive graphic which shows all the local campaign offices of the Obama and Romney campaigns. “the Obama has 755 offices nationwide for its get-out-the-vote effort — nearly three times as many as the Romney campaign.” Obama has campaign offices in all fifty states while Romney limited himself to sixteen states. Obama has more offices in each state except Utah where Romney has four offices (Logan, Midvale, Orem, St. George) to Obama’s one (Salt Lake City). Utah is home to the Church of Latter Day Saints so Romney commands a 71.8% to 20.3% lead in the polls there and has plenty of Mormon supporters to run national phone banks out of those offices.

More after the jump.
Notice how many campaign offices are in Ohio and to some extent Pennsylvania, Michigan and Virginia, but how few are in Indiana, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York.

We Are #1

The Daily Beast ranked American cities according to their yiddishkeit, as determined by their Jewish population, synagogues per capital, and number of Kosher restaurants. New York City took the top honors with 9.6% Jews and 504 Kosher restaurants. However, New York City only ranks #4 in terms of Synagogues per capita.

Who has the most synagogues per capita?

Philadelphia!
