All I can think of is "Willie Horton" and those suburban voters that pushed George Bush to victory, especially in MD and PA, which were two states that Dukakis should have won given Reagan's weakness there in '84.

Thoughts?

It's amazing how the Law & Order issue really seemed to kill Dukakis badly, and likely cost him MD and PA at a minimum, in addition to perhaps IL and maybe MO too.
