Want a vibrant, successful city? Vote Democrat! Uh...wait...

10 American cities with most people below official poverty level (source: U. S. Census Bureau "American Community Survey," 2006
                    % below "official govt poverty level"
1. Detroit              32.5%
2. Buffalo, NY      29.9%
3. Cincinnati         27.8%
4. Cleveland          27.0%
5. Miami, Fl          26.9%
6. St. Louis            26.8%
7. El Paso              26.4%
8. Milwaukee        26.2%
9. Philadelphia      25.1%
10. Newark           24.2%

What do these cities (>250,000) with the highest poverty rate all have in common?  Could it be...

Detroit, Mi hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1961
Buffalo, NY hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1954
Cincinnati, Oh hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1984
Cleveland, Oh hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1989
Miami, Fl has never had a Republican mayor
St. Louis, Mo hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1949
El Paso, Tx has never had a Republican mayor
Milwaukee, Wi hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1908
Philadelphia, Pa hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1952
Newark, NJ hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1907

"Don't pay any attention to this, citizens!  It is nothing but a coincidence!  A fluke!  A statistical nothing.  We have to keep electing Democrats to run government at all levels, cuz that's the only way to have nice things and civilized cities!

That's why you should vote for Hilliary!  Cuz she's smart.  And equally important, her party--which of course you should join and contribute lotsa cash to--is led by the brightest, most enlightened thinkers, like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi!  Our policies are absolutely brilliant--which is why we have nice cities instead of the awful disasters of cities headed by Rethuglicans!
