Bush 41 was the kind of Republican who appealed to the Northeast, and the Northeast overall was much less Democratic then than it is now.

Kerry also didn't really get much of any of a home state boost, either. Maybe it's just not a big deal to folks in Massachusetts.

Kennedy also polled worse in some counties than Humphrey would do 8 years later. Humphrey took Plymouth and Kennedy didn't (Johnson took every county, but that of course was an exceptional election)

I assume these counties were disproportionately Protestant areas (by Massachusetts standards)? The 1960 results had a heavy Catholic for Kennedy/Protestant for Nixon split, moreso than pretty much any election ever (1928 as well, possibly even greater than 1960).
