McCain Won Boston

Mitt Romney said in his speech tonight that he’s proud “the three places I have lived have all voted for us — Michigan, Massachusetts and Utah.”

Well check this out: Suffolk County (whose county seat is Boston) choose John McCain 46-45% over Romney. Looks like no love is lost on Beacon Hill.

  1. State government is dominated by Democrats and suburbanites see themselves as paying the bills. Their only consolation, until 2007, was a Republican in the “corner office”. Perhaps the Romney vote may have been gratitude for at least keeping the state house Democrats in check for a while. Western MA is less involved in state house politics, although one of the recent Republican governors – the worst of the lot, was from Berkshire county. There are very few Republicans in Suffolk County and I wouldn’t attach much meaning to their votes.

  2. To be fair, Romney resides in Middlesex County, which he won. Romney won his hometown of Belmont 65% to 30%.
