Here is a county-level map of the 2004 presidential election results, courtesy of USA Today:

The map is not showing for me
well, I live in a red county if not a red state. In the 24 years I have been voting I have never voted for a presidential candidate who won my state. But at least GWB did win!
Has Iowa been called for Bush?
Mrs VS you must live in my state MD
Notice that California is actually predominately red. It is just the large urban centers that are blue. This is echod across the country. Where the "elite" gather and become superior to us lower beings...(barf)
New Jersey. Used to be Massachusetts. Didn't vote Republican until 1992. I guess I voted for Mondale and Dukakis (with great difficulty - I was rather relieved he lost) and they won my state but not the presidency. But some year I hope my vote actually goes to the new president.
Look at PA and how many counties W turned red. Other than corrupt Philadelphia, PA is red, red, red...
Blue represents urban areas - heavy concentrations of people, even in the South.
That's nice, but is there a hi-res version of it anywhere?
The California solution is related to the San Andreas fault.....please hit us soon.....and the U.S. Border Patrol......... do your job.......
My county here in NM was RED! Interesting that only 3 states were solid red; Utah, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
It is a map of invasive, creeping SOCIALISM!!!
The blue is, I meant to say!!!
Do you remember that thread about the Austrailian election victory just a few days ago?
This map is BS. I've been to Hawaii and it's not just South of Texas. It took me like 12 hours to fly there from Chicago and it felt like we flew in a straight line that whole time going really fast.
And I know Alaska is way bigger than that, duh.
What are the grey areas in the map?
Thank God is right!!
Is #8 a map from 2000 or 2004?
The gray counties represent those with less than 5% margin that are not yet semi-officially called one way or the other for Bush (red) or Kerry (blue). As the day has worn on, the map has lost more & more of the gray areas. Keep checking the USA Today site.
Bush's raw vote totals seem to have increased in every state except AK, CA, and WA, but all these states also show fewer Democrat votes, so this must simply mean that all the results from these states are not in yet.
Bush's largest increases from 2000 came in FL (+925K) and GA (+448K), OH (+445K), PA (+467K), and TX (+696K).
Looking at the margin of total Bush votes less combined Dem and Nader votes, Bush showed improvement in every single state except DC and VT. In other words, Bush closed the gap or widened his lead in all other states.
Kerry and Nader got fewer votes this time than Gore and Kerry combined last time in AL, AK, AZ, CA, CT, KS, NE, NJ, NY, RI, UT and WA. Some of these western states might not fully be reporting.
NY is pretty interesting: Bush increased his votes by 377K, while KerryNader got 281K fewer votes than GoreNader.
In Alabama, Bush increased his totals by 233K while KerryNader fell 12K. Bush's percentage increased from 56.97% to 62.70% (percentage is of Bush-Dem-Nader, not including 3rd party candidates).
In AZ, Bush has increased his total 123.7K while KerryNader got 6K less. Bush went from 51.67% to 55.55%.
In CT, Bush increased his total 125K while KerryNader fell by 20K. Bush increased from 38.91% to 44.40%.
In NJ, Bush increased his total 303K while KerryNader fell 65K. Bush increased his total from 40.54% to 46.62%.
In RI, Bush increased 30K while KerryNader fell 23K. Bush increased from 32.23% to 39.12%.
Bush's biggest increase in share of the vote came in Hawaii, where he increased his share from 37.79% to 45.63%. He increased his total votes by 56,264 while KerryNader increased his by 4,409.
In VT, Bush's share fell from 41.42% to 39.10%. And while Cheney did indeed deliver WY to Bush, Bush got only 69.50% versus 70.98% last time. This represents the biggest drop in vote percentage for the Bush Cheney team after VT. It it keeps losing 1.49% of the vote in each presidential race, then in 2060, Wyoming will become a blue state. However, even though the Dems increased their percentage, the Republicans gained 19,182 votes while the Dems gained 12,873 votes. The reason the Dem vote percentage increased is because of the new votes, they were higher than 30%.
FL was the great performer. Bush increased his vote total by 925K, to 3.8 million. KerryNader increased by 483K. So while both sides had GOTV, Bush had a lot more.
Most importantly, Bush won. And since I stayed up so damned late, time for bed!
Something tells me the Liberal Democrats are out of touch with America (but increasingly in touch with themselves)?
No wonder the world looks overpopulated to them.
No wonder they are trampling over each other for limited jobs.
No wonder health issues are so important (the fish bowl is pretty crowded).
Have our Cities become the new liberal bastions, the Sodom and Gomorrahs of our times.
Give it time, the variables in the population equation are self correcting (they abort themselves, gay unions [childless], higher rate of mortality [crime, disease])
The San Andrea Fault alone could give 55 electoral votes back to the Republicans.
I would support a Federal bill to force welfare recipients out of the inner cities to find jobs in rural America.
Is Alaska just snowed in?
