The Massachusetts Legislature, with 88% of its members coming from the Democratic party, jumped ahead of Hawaii (83%) and Rhode Island (82%) as the most Democratic legislature in the country as a result of the 2006 election. Rounding out the top five Democratic legislatures are Arkansas (76%) and Maryland (76%).
In fact, I looked up the numbers. In 2002, when Romney became the de facto head of the state party, the GOP held 23/160 seats in the state House and 7/40 in the state Senate. Now it is 19/160 and 5/40.
