The good folks over at DailyKos Elections have been engaged in a project to assemble presidential election results by congressional district all across the country.

I went one step further, and compared Obama's district-by-district numbers to the congressional election results.

First, to recap:

Looking at the numbers, all four Democratic incumbents outperformed President Obama in percentage terms. And Greg Walden outperformed Mitt Romney in percentage terms, too.

Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader outperformed President Obama in terms of raw vote totals as well - by 24,303 and 4238 votes, respectively. (Same for Greg Walden, who outperformed Mitt Romney by 31,475 votes.)

Here's the table:

Full disclosure: My firm built Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader's campaign websites. I speak only for myself.

    Kari, do you have numbers for cities such as Portland, Salem, Corvallis, Medford, and Bend? Obama won Eugene by 69% to 26% for Romney, and Springfield by 55% to 39% for Romney. In Lane County, it was 60%:36% in Obama's favor.
