Honestly surprised Trump isn't doing better here. Good sign for New Hampshire!

This survey has pot #Over50, too.
I was on the fence about the charter school proposal but then someone came on the radio and suggested that he was for it because of "liberal and progressive agendas" in public schools so guess how I am voting if it seems the primary driver of it is to indoctrinate children with ammosexual propaganda (a pun between Putin and Maher)?

Clinton is winning her solid blue states (CA, MA, NY, IL, etc.) by much wider margin than Trump is winning his solid red states (TX, GA, KS, etc.).

Wish we would get more polls of competitive states rather than TX, KS, IL and MA. Oh and 3 freakin' California polls!

Massachusetts is arguably the epicenter of the "knowledge economy" (I feel dirty for saying this). The Boston metro area has one of the largest concentrations of highly-educated professionals in the country. It's not exactly a place where Trump has a lot of appeal...

GA is a "solid red state" the way MI is a"solid blue state."

Anyway, I'm glad most of my fellow Massachusettsans apparently aren't falling for the alt-right con-artist.

Some parts of non-Boston MA I could see liking Trump more than other Republicans, but Boston could outweigh that.

Another factor is Romney had a very mild homestate advantage that MA is bouncing back from.

Well yeah, he wasn't going to win it, but there are a lot of "blue collar whites" in MA that still vote Democratic that he could have made inroads with.

It would be a bit too convenient for the red and blue states to trend toward Hillary while just the swing states trend toward Trump.

Peter Griffin comes to mind.

Oh wait that's Rhode Island.

If Massachusetts starts to develop a bog-standard 'big cities=Democratic, hinterlands=Republican' political geography I'll plotz.

Sure man, I agree with that but I think we're all prone to overstating just how "blue collar whites" there are in MA. Ultimately, most people live in the Boston metro area and there were wild swings towards Romney in the most affluent parts of the metro area, along with substantial swings towards Romney in more populous and slight less affluent townships. It's hard to see Clinton doing worse than Obama's 08 performance there; she's liable to do a bit better.

I think I misread your post though! I think MA will trend towards Trump. I just don't think that'll the result will look anything like Rhode Island's result in the end, for instance.

So, you thinking that RI will trend more REP of less than MA???

Couldn't tell from your post what that last part meant. Smiley
