Those of you who are willing to take up a challenge on a Monday morning might want to check out David Latterman’s analysis of San Francisco city politics. Tracking the fluctuations in political views in S.F.’s eleven supervisory districts is not easy, but Latterman’s report does just that. He charts voting patterns over the years and shows which districts stay firmly in the conservative or liberal columns and which ones are shifting in either direction. Some of the findings will only confirm voters convictions about who are the most liberal and who the most conservative city residents, but the shifts are interesting to follow. It’s hard to know to what extent these shifts might affect local elections in November, but it will be fun watching.
