Which candidate will Superbowl victory parade hurt?
Coordinating Super Tuesday voting in Massachusetts next week will turn into a real headache should the New England Patriots win the Superbowl. The Globe reports that secretary of state Galvin is concerned about voter access to major polling places at City Hall, the State House, and Copley Square — locations that have been swarmed with tens of thousands of fans during earlier victory Duckboat parades. (One million fans — give or take several hundred thousand — attended the last Patriots parade.) A parade will undoubtedly depress voter turnout in Boston by clogging the streets, but I suspect a lot of Patriots fans from outside Boston will be deciding to spend the day at the parade rather than vote.
So my question is: Which candidate will this hurt more?
