This state will go Blue by a large margin. 

Here's how Democrats have fared in the 21st century. Democrats have been fairly consistent here. Romney having been a MA gov probably accounts for obama's relatively weaker 2012 numbers.

Middlesex ? 37 27 30 29 31
Worcester ? 10 9 14 14 19
Essex ? 22 16 20 17 22
Norfolk ? 27 15 18 21 25
Suffolk ? 61 56 56 53 51
Massachusetts Totals ? 27 23 26 25 27

Here's how MA has voted since 2008. The darker the color the more support. This shows, in order, presidential nominee, governor, 2 US Senators, and then the US Reps. MA lost a US rep after the 2010 census. To me, this is the ideal state. They're almost always on the right side of history. They're way ahead in education, science, and medicine. They have a deep sense of culture and activism. They also have the New England Patriots and are the home state for like half of the cast from The office. Even their Republicans embrace these things. If only the entire country were Massachusetts. That said, they do have some issues that need improvement, most noticeably systemic racism in parts of Boston, despite much of the Boston Town Council being Black.

I wouldn't be surprised if this long term girlfriend to whom you keep alluding is actually just the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Ha! She's actually from Colorado but was raised in England. We met when I moved from NYC back to Texas,where she was living at the time. I keep trying to convince her that we should move to Massachusetts. I'm more of an East Coast person. She's more of a West Coast person. She went to undergrad in Portland and also lived in Seattle.

This is not universally seen as a positive. 

Agreed. That’s enough for me to never visit the state ;)

Right?  Like, if I could pick up the California fires and relocate them somewhere.... ;c)

Send them to Jacksonville. The terrible, terrible yet fantastic city will find something fun to do with them.
