Lots of blue states have GOP governors from time to time, I would be shocked to see Vermont turn red or even red-purple but I'm not from New England.Vermont is changing now though. All the NYC hippies from the 60s (think Bernie) are now growing old and the young ones that stay are conservative. Most people under 50 that get an education leave Vermont. They have a harder time attracting youth so things are going a bit more conservative up there. They now have a GOP governor and far more libertarian and republican seats in their legislature and mayors. Thats a changing state in the next decade or so.
