    Why does Gosnold show on the map as 50-50 but appear in blue for Markey? And the chart shows no results?

    Okay, it not shows the results on the chart 15 votes each for Markey and Gomez.

    Gomez before he announced his candidacy: “I agree with President Obama on guns and immigration” But then he takes different position on guns. WTH?

    I’m not sure why people are focused on having such a polarized senator politician?!?

      Who is polarized?

      • Donk

        So that’s why… You can’t even see it.

          If you can’t say who is polarized and how, then it doesn’t exist. What’s your hesitation? You don’t like one of the candidates in particular; and I can only vote for one of them (two of the candidates scare me). We have our individual opinions – that is not news.

            Markey was polarizing only to Republicans, as the election results amply show. Or don’t you believe that voting counts? Or does “the people have spoken, deal with it,” apply only when it’s a Republican winning under dubious circumstances, not a Democrat winning by an uncontestable majority?

            Disgusting.

            I voted for Markey… Because he is the one of the sanest voices on climate change – which is the most critical issue that humankind has ever faced.

            Watch his acceptance speech: http://www.boston.com/politicalintelligence/2013/06/25/markey-wins-senate-special-election/Usgk0SJybrxtlFyMfIlFkK/story.html

            So would you then contend that Gomez was polarized to Dems? Markey won because this is a democratic state with lemmings who see “D” and fill in the circle appropriately. I live here so I’ll put up with it. BUT I’m moving soon to a different state and with Mass voting in Dem’s hoping for more Fed regulated control, it’s looking more like leaving this state won’t get me far enough away. So focused on forcing it’s views on others.

    I’ve been seeing that same sort of voting pattern a lot recently — suburban living doesn’t exactly seem to encourage deep thinking….
