Win or lose nationally do you think he'll replicate this map in New England?



On a side note I never knew he so thoroughly dominated New England.

Liberal democrats almost always dominate in New England. He's no different.

Agreed. Every state in NE will go blue with the exception of NH. NY will go blue as well.

I don't think you will see the map look like that this time. However, a lot of it depends on who runs on the GOP ticket. If it's a more moderate candidate, you'll see more "red" in New England. If it's more "Palin" esq you'll see more blue.

Maine will be mostly red this time (And in fact has already flipped red on a local level) as will most of Southern NH, some parts of central MA and some parts of CT. It'll probably look a lot more like the 2004 election.

Yep - if a candidiate like Palin gets on the GOP ticket, I'm voting Green.

Bush won New Hampshire if I'm not mistaken.

Well NY is always blue. But you think he'll go from winning every county in NH to losing the state? That would be a terrible reflection on how they saw his presidency if it happens.

I have to imagine it will be redder if only for the fact there is no Bush fatigue. Then again the GOP line up is rather weak.

I vote for Obama last time mainly because he was the kinda Black guy. I'm a rather racial fellow. Not sure if thats enough for me to throw my vote to him again this election. I'm writing in Howard Taft. lol

So if Herman Cain gets the nod, he's your man, right?

I can't imagine him doing so, but I'd consider him. Likely would be better than Obama.

Obama will likely get my vote... Not an enthusiastic vote, mind you. I might consider voting for Romney if he get's the nomination. I would also consider voting for Huntsman, but he's not getting the nomination. The rest of the Republican field has just about zero appeal.

He did in 2000, thanks mostly to Ralph Nader. Without Nader, Gore would have taken NH and the Election, without Florida coming into play.

Kerry took NH in 2004.
