A few blocks away, Eric Sapp, a 42-year-old chef, looked skeptical when told that city data had him listed as a registered Republican.

"I got to check on that," said Sapp, who voted for Obama.

Clark is also a city commissioner, one of three elected officials who oversee Philadelphia elections."In the African American community from 33d to 24th between Ridge and Somerset, there is a large population of Democrats and there are not many Republicans in there at all. People are not feeling that Romney is in touch with them," Clark said.Despite the Democratic advantage in the 28th Ward, Clark says he also makes sure party workers are getting the vote out. Mitt Romney waves to the crowd as he arrives at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA. Thousands braved the cold for hours just 2 days before the Presidential election. These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst, but such results may not be so startling after all.(Charles Fox / Staff Photographer) It's one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. "We have always had these dense urban corridors that are extremely Democratic," said Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University.Oh, and 13 other city divisions did the same thing in 20.Three of the 15th's registered Republicans were listed as living in the same apartment, but the tenant there said he had never heard of them.Cathy Santos, 56, founder of the National Alliance of Women Veterans, had one theory: "We ran him out of town! James Norris, 19, who lives down the street, is listed as a Republican in city data.But he said he's a Democrat and voted for Obama because he thinks the president will help the middle class."People get out, give out literature, talk to people about the issues. "People know them in their divisions." Clark struggled to recall anyone in his area who ever identified as a Republican.Though that is not something anyone would likely volunteer to a Democratic ward leader, Clark eventually remembered Lewis Harris, the GOP leader in the nearby 29th ward, and that rare species: an urban black Republican.
