Massachusetts President(Rasmussen)

Obama: 51%

Rasmussen is known to heavily favor Republicans in general election matchups.  Then they claim they are geniuses when they predict a Republican upset, but they are wrong much more often than they are right.

Their polls *this year* seem to have a mild Democratic lean overall though...  (Compared to other polls).  I don't think this is entirely unreasonable - Dukakis beat Bush by only 8 in '88.

Odd considering their Senate poll seemed pretty legit.

Yes, this is completely believable. Massachusetts can't stand Romney, so he'll be lucky to get more than a couple of points than McCain did. 1988 was a long time ago, I wouldn't bet on Romney even getting close in Massachusetts.

I don't think Romney will win MA, but BOSTON could narrow CHICAGO's lead.  It is an odd quark to this election.

So Obama leads by 16 in New Mexico but only 11 in Massachusetts...

Yes, Cook County has tilted Massachusetts to the Democrats for some time now.

Meh, this is coming from the same sample that has Brown trailing by 1 to Warren, which is pretty spot on.

I'm not sure it'll be this close, but Romney will keep Obama under 60% in Massachusetts.

Time heals old wounds. Massachusetts is starting to love Mitt again after looking back on his years as Governor in hindsight.

Remember that McCain once polled 50% in MA against Obama. Some of the working class voters in Boston don't like Obama for certain reasons, which puts him at a lower advantage than most Democrats.

I was no-ing redcommander's post, not ShadowOfTheWave's. Romney is less hated than he was in 2006 but 'starting to love Mitt again' is laughably untrue. Republican primary turnout cratered from 2008.

Makes perfect sense. Its a state that has peaked for Democrats in terms of overperformance. Still Democratic to be sure but not as much as years ago.

That's not how the phenomenon of states 'maxing out' usually works.

How does Dukakis' somewhat narrow win there in 1988 relate to this race?

At any rate, Obama wins Massachusetts 58-42%.
