it is also important to note that the 'bluest of the blue' states: vermont, massachusetts, rhode island, hawaii, and connecticut, all have gop governors.

meanwhile democrats hold the governors office in north carolina, wyoming, montana. tennessee, virginia

They're less politically polarizing than President. BTW, no one tell Romney that when the state House and Senate are well over 2/3rds Democratic, that means he has no power.

Correct the GOP govenors in the blue states tend to be moderate to liberal Republicans, more liberal than the Natl GOP party (Romney has moved to the right, but ran as a moderate & the Dem Govenors in GOP states do tend to be moderate to conservative Democrats, more conservative than the Dem Natl Party.

Correct the GOP govenors in the blue states

There are no "blue states". There are no "red states". How long does this little truth take to take root into your thought patterns?

Point is Dem Govenors in states Bush won tend to be more conservative than the dem Natl Party, Republican Govenors in states Kerry won tend to be more liberal than the Natl Republican party.
