The Dixville Notch Curse

Mark Steyn highlights past results in early-voting Dixville Notch, New Hampshire. The little town went for Richard Nixon in 1960, Gerald Ford in 1976, and George H.W. Bush in 1992. In the last, Bill Clinton finished fourth with just three votes, behind Bush, Ross Perot, and Libertarian Andre Marrou. This year, Barack Obama beat John McCain there. Some Steyn readers, clutching at notches as he puts it, think this indicates a Dixville Notch curse where the winner of this town loses the presidential election. I had a different reaction — Dixville Notch usually votes Republican even in Democratic election cycles and didn’t this time.
