Is he right?
Despite its reputation, Massachusetts did not deliver the highest percentage of its votes to the Democratic nominee in the most recent presidential election. Obama did better in his native Hawai’i and Illinois and also in New York, Vermont and Joe Biden’s Delaware. But, only once since 1956 has a Republican won a majority of votes in the Bay State in a presidential election. The Gipper won with a plurality in 1980, winning a smaller percentage of the vote there than in did in Minnesota which he lost. (John Anderson drew 15% of the vote in Massachusetts, but only 8% in the Gopher State.)
