slides: Massachusetts a Top-10 State for Democrats
Saturday, August 04, 2012
The Gallup Organization has released its list of the top-10 most Democratic states in America, and Massachusetts took the No. 5 spot. Gallup ranked states by what they call the "Democratic advantage," which takes the percentage of people in a given state that lean toward the Republican party, and subtracts that number from the percentage of people that lean toward the Democratic party.
By finding this "Democratic advantage," Gallup believes they have uncovered the most Democratic states in America and, not surprisingly, eight of the top-10 are found on the east coast. Check out the slideshow below for the full list, and see the Gallup results here.
