I'm no expert on Chicago but based on what I know, support for Wal-Mart seems inversely correlated with income. (As income goes up support wanes.)

The wealthiest ward is the second lowest color (just below the very large section of the darkest Green on the shore of Lake Michigan. But what's also interesting is that the area that includes the quite wealthy University of Chicago Campus, Hyde Park, is yellow.

So basically, in general you're right, but there are a few anomalies.


One of these days I'm going to join an anti-Walmart protest, carrying a sign reading "Down with low prices!!! Down with wide selections!!!"
