BOSTON — There is generally little suspense in Massachusetts when it comes to a presidential election, and there wasn’t on election night. The state is reliably Democratic, and the only question is how big the party’s victory will be.
Just don’t tell that to the good folks of Sutton and Webster, Mass., where Tuesday’s vote was considerably more dramatic than the statewide total would have you believe.
In each of those two small communities in Worcester County, about an hour west of Boston, Joseph R. Biden Jr. beat President Trump by just a single vote.
In Sutton, the tally was 3,042 to 3,041 for Mr. Biden. In Webster, 4,003 to 4,002.
The region, once dominated by Democrats, has become a Republican enclave in recent years. In some neighboring small communities, Mr. Trump prevailed over Mr. Biden.
Statewide, however, Mr. Biden had nothing to sweat over. He defeated Mr. Trump with 66 percent of the vote.

Watch as dueling vote-counting protests take over a street corner in Philadelphia.
PHILADELPHIA — As election officials work through a backlog of thousands of absentee ballots, protesters squared off outside of the convention center here.
Trump supporters led by Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida, and Corey Lewandowski, a political adviser, held up a printed out court order that permitted Trump campaign poll watchers to get closer to observe the ballot counting. The order was appealed by state Democrats.
Bondi’s brief remarks were drowned out by protesters across the street blasting “Party” by Beyoncé, dancing to the music and waving signs declaring “Count every vote.”
Joe Biden's presidential campaign is rolling out the endorsements of more than 190 former sheriffs, state attorneys general, and U.S. attorneys as Donald Trump runs his 'law and order' campaign.
A Russian influence operation posed as an independent news outlet to target left-wing voters in the United States and Britain, including by recruiting freelance journalists to write about domestic politics, Facebook said on Tuesday.
With the political conventions behind us and Labor Day approaching, it's the time of year when down-ballot elections start to kick into high gear. At the start of the 2020 cycle, the Senate wasn't expected to be all that exciting, with Republicans largely on defense in red states.
The vote to renominate President Donald Trump is set to be conducted in private later this month, without members of the press present. Nominating conventions are traditionally meant to be media bonanzas, and if the GOP decision stands, it will mark the first party nominating convention in modern history to be closed to reporters.
President Trump traveled to the battleground state of Wisconsin on Thursday, touring a shipyard in Marinette and highlighting his efforts to bring back manufacturing jobs and to invest in the U.S. military.
Amy Klobuchar's decision as a Minneapolis prosecutor in 2006 not to bring charges against the police officer filmed kneeling on the neck of George Floyd could cost her the role of vice president, critics have said.
“With the way the media hates President Trump, if taking hydroxychloroquine was truly bad for him, they’d be encouraging it rather than having a meltdown,” one GOP hopeful tweeted.
While the labels add a new layer of information — and one users won't have to click to find — it's unlikely to help with more insidious attempts to influence the November presidential election and sow political discord in the US.
“[T]he nature of operatives is to run as hard into the wall as you can until there’s no longer a campaign,” said Steve Schale, head of the pro-Biden super PAC, Unite The Country.
The stakes are high for Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders as six states hold primaries today. Democratic contests are underway in Washington state, Idaho, North Dakota, Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi. CBS News political correspondent Ed O'Keefe reports from Detroit while CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns joins CBSN on set to discuss the latest developments.
Joe Biden's status as the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential race highlights the party's hypocrisy when it comes to striking down Donald Trump, SKY News Australia "Outsiders" host Rita Panahi says. Ms Panahi said it's surprising the candidate, who is "so confused that he has trouble remembering where he is and why he's there," has not been discounted. "Biden's cognitive issues have been evident for some time but just watch the same media who for four years have been declaring Donald Trump mentally and physically unfit for office have a collective meltdown when Biden's mental faculties are questioned," she said. "Can you imagine that man in a presidential debate with Donald Trump? There's not enough popcorn in the world."
With all polls closed on Super Tuesday, Texas continues to look like a toss up and California is too early to call. CBS News elections and surveys director Anthony Salvanto provides updates on the states with the two biggest delegate hauls.
