In this post regarding Maine, I mentioned the political history of Vermont. I have previously written about the tendency of most of the northeastern states to turn toward the Democratic Party, when the Republicans shifted their focus toward the Sun Belt. Vermont has made just about the largest shift of any of those states.

Vermont looks like a sure thing for Obama.
