It’s late, so I’ll be brief.
With a January 2010 turnout of 20,000+, on the wave of anti-health care reform & tea party madness, Scott Brown shocked the world and won Lowell by 1,002 votes.
It looked like this:
The graph shows the % of voters for Coakley, decreasing Left to Right. This shows where the candidates’ support lies.
But, with a June 2013 turnout of half that, things went the other way.
The graph shows the % of voters for Markey, decreasing Left to Right. This shows where the candidates’ support lies.
I like this graph best. If you subtract Gomez % from Brown %, you see where the GOP brand is softening in Lowell. Ward 1 is just filled with a bunch of “Hooray for me! Democrats.” Pfft.
Some thought jots:
- Looks like Stephen Lynch’s efforts, during the primary, and Ed Markey’s efforts in the general; to call up the SEA community worked well.
- The Precincts that drive the municipal elections lean Republican. Even though, they are mostly registered Dems and Unenrolleds. *blech*
- The “Mills to Martinis” profiteering is completely screwing up ‘Lowell’ politics. I <3 Ward 2!
