  •  Massachusetts is less progressive than thought. (0+ / 0-)

    I've lived here my whole life (43 years, and at least semi-active in politics since age 15).  The truth is that in Mass. the Democratic party in the state is simply larger and better organized than the Republicans.  This superior organization has enabled Democrats to win a lot more races than we "should."  Similarly, because the Republican party is so small, many center-right politicans run as Democarats--the same way many less right wing politicians in places like Wyoming will run as Republicans.

    In short, don't blame Massachusetts for not being a hippie paradise--instead praise Massachusetts Democrats for doing an outstanding job winning race after race such that, despite a somewhat conservative population in many areas, we aren't considered a swing state.
