Breaking the status quo

It’s official, Little Havana has gone Blue (and here are the numbers to prove it)

Ninoska Pérez Castellón and Mauricio Claver-Carone say they want to see precinct numbers? Well amigos, your cup is about to runneth over.

The Miami Herald has published an interactive map showing precinct-by-precinct results and reveals a pretty, pretty interesting phenomenon that should give hardliners even more heartburn.  Little Havana has decisively gone Blue, and here are the precinct numbers to prove it, running along Calle Ocho from Versailles Restaurant (37th Ave.), through Maximo Gomez “Domino” Park (15th Ave.), all the way east to Tinta y Cafe (I-95 corridor).

Precinct 547 = 51.4% Obama, 47.8% Romney

Precinct 563 = 60.9% Obama, 39% Romney

Precinct 564 = 61.7% Obama, 37.7% Romney

Precinct 566 = 61.9% Obama, 37.7% Romney

Precinct 565 = 58.3% Obama, 41% Romney

Precinct 570 = 53.4% Obama, 46.2% Romney

Precinct 572 = 44.4% Obama, 54.6% Romney

Precinct 574 = 47.4% Obama, 52.1% Romney

Precinct 575 = 46% Obama, 53.7% Romney

Precinct 670 = 46% Obama, 53.7% Romney

Technically, the last four precincts (572, 574, 575, 670), which went for Romney, don’t run on the stretch of road commonly known as Historic Little Havana. They’re either directly west or a block south, but I thought I’d include them anyway to throw the hardliners a bone (los pobres, they’re entire world seems to be crumbling this week).

Now, I admit that Little Havana is no longer purely Cuban as it used to be, but it is still overwhelmingly Cuban, (just go for a walk down to El Pub or Cuba Ocho sometime and listen to the accents) and the margins along the main thoroughfare (547, 563, 564, 565, 570) went decisively for Obama.  They even elected Jose Javier Rodriguez, a Cuban-American Democrat and supporter of Obama’s Cuba travel and remittance policy to represent them in the Florida House of Representatives.

From a narrative point of view, these numbers should have Ninoska and Mauricio running for the Pepto-Bismol.

But for those of us living outside the bubble, this doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. Dale!
