A quick look at how San Diego County residents voted for president reveals a startling shift:

2008

Obama/Biden: 522,136 votes (53.83 percent)

McCain/Palin: 431,772 votes (44.51 percent)

(There are still about 220,000 absentee and provisional ballots left to be counted.)

2004

Bush/Cheney: 596,033 votes (52.34 percent)

Kerry/Edwards: 526,437 votes (46.23 percent)

2000

Bush/Cheney: 475,736 votes (49.63 percent)

Gore/Lieberman: 437,666 votes (45.66 percent)

The vote shift coincides with the registration edge that Democrats won countywide just days before the election.
