A couple of historical reference points are needed to appropriately present the Boston Herald Radio report.
♦ First, remember the intensity in December 2009/January 2010 for “The People’s Seat“, when blocking ObamaCare was a desperate challenge. We have met these people, they are incredibly sharp, keen, and know how to rise quickly and take action.
There is a strain of “common sense conservatism” amid a significant portion of the Bay State electorate that rises to action in the face of urgent and consequential need. Massachusetts has proven they are incredibly apt at rapid response when needed. After engaging with them for two months in Dec/Jan ’10, I personally gained an intense respect for a VERY intelligent, yet quietly invisible, segment of the Massachusetts electorate.

♦ Second, remember how the national media was shocked, SHOCKED, that Donald Trump drew in over 15,000 people to a rally in Lowell Massachusetts. The MSM just couldn’t conceptualize it, but it took place nonetheless. The Washington Post called it “mind-boggling”. “The high temperature was 29 degrees yesterday, and the Trump rally was at night”…
Those attendees are EXACTLY the people we met and engaged with in 2009/2010. Brilliantly patriotic and intensely politically savvy – Any team in America would want that electorate on their team.
BOSTON – Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official.
Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.
Galvin called both “significant” changes that dwarf similar shifts ahead of other primary votes, including in 2000, when some Democrats flocked from the party in order to cast a vote for Sen. John McCain in the GOP primary.
The primary reason? Galvin said his “guess” is simple: “The Trump phenomenon,” a reference to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who polls show enjoying a massive lead over rivals Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and others among Massachusetts Republican voters.
[…] Galvin said the state could see as many as 700,000 voting in tomorrow’s Republican primary, a significant number given just 468,000 people are actually registered Republicans. In Massachusetts. unenrolled — otherwise known as independent — voters can cast a ballot in the primary of any party. (read more)
