Framingham Presidential Election Results

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 15,826George Bush / Dan Quayle (R)
