Good evening, gentlemen:

Here is a revised 2008 swing map for each town in New England (I made an inferior one some time ago) that uses the Atlas swing color scheme.



More maps are forthcoming, including 2008 Trend. I will also take requests for any maps involving recent presidential elections in New England. I'll use this thread to post them and hopefully get into some discussions about the results.

Yours truly,

hc

If you have time, I'd be interested in seeing a plus/minus map for Kerry compared to the average of 2000 and 2008, to see the areas (especially in Mass.) where Kerry was more popular.

I'll get on it tomorrow. In the mean time, check these results out:

Wendell, MA

2000 Presidential

Gore 210
Nader 166
Bush 76

2004 Democratic Presidential Primary

Kucinich 96
Kerry 58
Edwards 23

In 2008, the town voted 84% for Obama - truly a progressive's paradise.

Here's what you requested.

Red=Kerry outperforms Gore/Obama average by 5+%
Light pink=Kerry outperforms Gore/Obama average by 0-5%
Light blue=Kerry underperforms Gore/Obama average by 0-5%
Blue=Kerry underperforms Gore/Obama average by 5+%



This map is not that great, since most of the overperforming Kerry towns had Gore/Obama averages weighed down by a high Nader vote in 2000. The map just looks like an overall Dem/Rep strength map.

If you like, I can try this again, but this time comparing Kerry percentages to the Gore and Nader/Obama average.

Not too surprised about my town trending GOP... it was a Silber town in 1990, but Baker won it with a majority.

Keep it coming, HC!

Interesting to see the difference as soon as one crosses the MA-NH line.  I would've thought it would be much more gradual.

I was wondering, I have been working on a precinct level chart of the vote for Connecticut and Massachusetts for Nov 2008.  I also am working on charts of Connecticut (forget Mass) with the poll, absentee and other totals.  Have you gotten any of this in your search?  If you have could I send you what I have so far and hopefully get more info?  or something. thx.

Lephead, I'd love to see how you managed to put together some of those results - did you have to go grubbing town by town? I have a few precinct results here and there, maybe I can help you out. Send me a message.

I just looked it up on wiki and was somewhat surprised to discover that it's not a college town. Any explanation  for its voting behavior?

It's not a college town per se, but it's located so close to Smith and UMass Amherst and Hampshire College that I suspect its population (along with Pelham and Shutesbury and Leverett) is comprised largely of commuting faculty and students at the colleges.

Here is the first part of Nader strength, 2000. Increments of 2%.

Also, it looks like Nader (or maybe Buchanan!?) won a town in Southern VT in 2000. Which one and why? Tongue

That town is Searsburg. In fact, Harry Browne, the Libertarian candidate won there.

Searsburg has a really strange electoral history. Bush recieved zero votes there in 2000, and it was the only town to be won by both Kerry and McCain in Vermont (amidst all the others swinging very hard to Obama). It was also won by Ross Perot in 1992, one of only four that he won there.

My pleasure. Here's one which is shaping up to be one of the most beautiful:
Swing from 2000 to 2008.



LOL @ Vermont.
