Neighborhood-by-neighborhood city-council number crunching

Matt O'Malley, who knows something about citywide elections (having run for at-large city councilor twice and having managed Suffolk Sheriff Andrea Cabral's election bid), analyzes how each of Boston's wards voted in Tuesday's at-large council election.

Among other things: He was shocked at how badly Arroyo did in normally progressive Back Bay/Beacon Hill (although he did win Ward 11 on the JP/Roxbury line, even if barely over Yoon) and was surprised Murphy came in third in Roxbury/South Bay (getting Deval Patrick to return your endorsement with one of his own pays off). Also: Look to Mission Hill to become a swing district.
