Fresh off of Donald Trump win of the White House, I thought it would be interesting to see how Framingham performed against the actual winner of a major presidential election.
Framingham is clearly a blue town, at least that's what it has shown on every election result since 1972. The only year that the town went Republican was in 1984.
Here is a table highlighting how the town votes
|2016||7,031||20,277||Donald J. Trump / Mike Pence (R)|
|2012||8,938||18,340||Barack Obama/ Joe Biden (D)|
|2008||8,430||17,839||Barack Obama / Joe Biden (D)|
|2004||8,448||17,239||George W. Bush / Richard Cheney (R)|
|2000||7,347||17,308||George W. Bush / Richard Cheney (R)|
|1996||6,669||16,836||Bill Clinton / Al Gore (D)|
|1992||8,114||15,165||Bill Clinton / Al Gore (D)|
|1988||12,745||15,826||George Bush / Dan Quayle (R)|
|1984||15,074||14,368||Ronald Reagan / George Bush (R)|
|1980||11,979||12,275||Ronald Reagan / George Bush (R)|
|1976||13,903||15,387||Jimmy Carter / Walter Mondale (D)|
|1972||12,975||15,652||Richard Nixon / Spiro Agnew (R)|
Data used in the above table came from the Massachusetts PD43+ Elections Statistics Database.
