New Yorkers are among the weirdest people politically I have ever met. Unambiguously liberal in talk, but still willing to elect Republicans.

New Yorkers may be weird politically, but I'm not sure they have anything on DC government (not Federal). They're the ones who re-elect a crack smoking tax dodging criminal to serve in office. And this is on top of doing what all politicians do - accept bribes, appoint relatives, etc, etc. Oh, and did I mention they love him? Go figure that one!! (I'm talking about Marion Barry, in case you aren't familiar with him.)

Too many people do not know squat about who is running but they feel like they got to vote anyhow! This is where name recognition comes in and whether a candidate has had good or bad press, their name is still in the news and people recognize it when they cast their ballots.

I vote for my state Louisiana....there are sooooooo many examples but my personal favorite is the 1991 Gov race pitting KKK Grand Wizard and elected. Republican state rep David Duke ( one parish over from my parish) running against Gov Edwin Edwards (3x indicted and felon)
Edward's actual campaign slogan " vote for the crook, it's important" "vote for the lizard, not the wizard"..Duke lost, but carried 55% of the White voters in his district and received $$$ from the RNC

NYC voting patterns, pales in comparision IMHO
