Romney's Home State Blowout

A Smart Politics analysis finds the 23-point deficit by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts makes his home state performance the second worst in history by any major party presidential nominee since the formation of the Democratic Party in 1828.

"With just 37.5 percent of the vote to his name, Romney barely moved the needle on John McCain's performance in the state in 2008. The Arizona U.S. Senator won 36.0 percent of the vote in Massachusetts four years ago - losing by 25.8 points to Obama."

"The only presidential candidate to suffer a larger home state loss than Romney was the first-ever Republican nominee, John Frémont of California in 1856."
