Brent Finnegan -- November 3rd, 2009

Rockingham County went for the straight Republican ticket. No surprises there. After all, the county overwhelmingly voted for Gilmore over Warner last November.

But how did the city go so Republican? As John Elledge put it, “Obama’s Stone Spring precinct gives Lohr 63-37.” Remember this? What happened? Your best guesses below . . .

    I don’t think $38K is exceptionally high coming out of a four year college.
    Most any Chemistry or Physics major is going to be making more than that. I’m not sure about “life sciences”. Probably depends a lot if you are the traditional kind studying live/dead animals ( large scale ) or the newer ones dealing on a DNA level. Business majors? Vastly overpaid. English majors? Majority are teachers anyway. And most people non-teachers are working more way than 200 days for their salary.
