People are astonishingly ignorant of the demographics of New England.
A generation ago, towns there used to be solid R. Nowadays, they are Deep Blue.
Its simply difficult for Republicans to win there any more. NH is nowadays a Blue State and Kerry and Obama both won it.
Dixville Notch is no longer a true bellwether of anything. O lost some votes there this morning but NE remains his strongest region.
Preach it, brother...I live in Red Hampshire (spit), and I am not convinced that Romney will win here. Lots of SEIU/union thugs and radical 'womyn' round these parts that just adore 'The One'.
