This is possible though. Although I tend to vote Democrat, I may actually vote for Foley this year. Malloy just ain't doing the job. We need to stop being known as an unfriendly state for business. And having the highest taxes in the nation.

And just show me where is this shining example of a Republican state that's doing amazingly well? There are many Democratic states out there that are doing just fine, such as Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Oregon, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, the list goes on. The ONLY blue states that aren't doing so great are CT, RI, NY, NJ, MI, and CA.

Sounds like a typical conservative who thrives on anecdotal evidence, dogma and "patriotism."

Stylo is correct.

Blue for POTUS does not always mean their local pols are Democrats. If I recall the numbers correctly, we have 29 GOP governors, yet Obama did NOT lose 29 states. We have even more than 29 states with GOP control of either one or more chambers, and again Obama won some of those states.
