Hello, looking for a blue state where I can enjoy a good snowfall in the winter but I won't be frying in the summer (would prefer for it to not get above 80 degrees often.) Any suggestions?

I would aim for coastal MA, as 313Weather suggested. I lived there for a year and loved the climate. In the winter, it's not quite as cold as further inland, yet you still get the desired snowfall. In the summer, it's several degrees cooler. In fact, Beverly (where I lived) was often 10 degrees or so cooler than towns further inland, or Boston itself. It can get hot though, but it's usually just for short spells (a few days), then the temperature will drop back to the mid 70's again.

Usually Upstate NY, but we've had our share of days above 90 this summer. That is not that common up here though.

The more northern parts of the northeast, only.

Mid-Atlantic cities like NYC and Philly don't get all that much snowfall, and they're quite sticky and humid in the summer' I would aim for cities like Portland, Portsmouth, NH, Burlington, VT, etc..

Isn't Upstate NY a little more on the Red/Conservative-side of the spectrum?

I'm sure you could get something in MA for that, though not in Boston itself. Look at the North Shore specifically, maybe Salem, Beverly or Danvers.
