NH is staying purple because the people moving from MA are overwhelmingly conservatives leaving the liberal state. It is people from other parts of the country (particularly the mid west) that are moving to NH and making it blue. While I was at the University of New Hampshire I took a class on NH politics and we analyzed the political affiliations of immigration into and out of the state. You can thank MA for keeping NH somewhat decent.
