The suburban areas were bastion of the “liberal republican” brand that people like Rockefeller were so known for. In fact, for 72 years (1918-1988) the only Democrats to win New Jersey were FDR, John F Kennedy and LBJ.

But as the suburban areas near NYC and Philly became denser and denser - and as the “liberal Republican” became more extinct from the GOP, New Jersey became more and more of a Blue (Democrat) state. It didn’t really have much time as a true tossup/purple state as it narrowly went for Clinton in 1992 then was never close again.....reminds me a lot of Virginia in 2008 & going foward.
