2008 Massachusetts Election Map

*50%+ was for all towns McCain won, even if he won 49%-48% due to 3rd parties.  Other percentages are raw numbers.

I put this together for anyone who is curious.  Most Massachusetts Maps just show a sea of blue.  They aren’t very useful other than to tell us Massachusetts is liberal.  We already know that.  With this map, we can see a more useful breakdown.  Towns where McCain got 40%+ may be potential targets for open seats and are “must wins” for any statewide candidate.  Below the fold you can see the raw vote tallies I took from http://uselectionatlas.org/RES…

More accurately, I just did this because I was bored.  Enjoy!
