The color scheme seems off for MA and NY given the numbers.  Shouldn't NY be the one colored in more darkly?

Catholic versus Anti-Catholic dichotomy.

A good number of non-Irish Catholics were propping up the Republicans in many Northern states as the Dems still controlled the southern portions of PA-ILL and even some parts of upstate NY until the 1920's. The Non-Yankee protestants as Kevin Phillips calls them. Thus the Republicans were heavily depending on their own big city machines in Chicago and Philly, as well as anti-Irish coalitions including Italians, French Canadians and Jewish people in other cities to supplement their Yankee base, which was becoming dwarfed by other groups. When a Catholic nominee ran, who emphasized his working class and immigrant roots, you thus had massive trends towards the Dems in the cities, slightly countered by anti-Catholic trends among those Non-Yankee protestants in those Northern states.
