Bush now at 60,400,000+
Final totals will take several more weeks.
Are we finally getting around to counting the military vote?
Damn! Lotta votes! I know mine is in there!!
What are John Kerry's totals and percentages. Hoping to reach 52%
This is great!
What are John Kerry's totals and what are the current percentages? I'm hoping we can reach 52%
Margins. What are the margins? I believe that President Bush's lead is growing, which would be TOTALLY cool!
My only problem with this guy's site is that he makes "red" states blue. Geez, you'd think he'd get with the program.
Great website, thanks for the post.
Seems that Kerry's is going up in direct proportion also.
Wow, I didn't know there were so many "slack-jawed yokels" out there. :-)
That's over 20% of the total population of our nation.
so i guess there are now 61 mil idiots?according to that british rag
What are the chances Bush can take Wisconsin after all the absentee/military ballots are counted? That would be another kick in the teeth to the Dems.
I voted on Oct. 23rd, early voting.
I wonder if they count those votes prior
to election day??
Ha Ha, just kidding. If he reaches 52% then my estimate from long ago of the popular vote count, 52-48, will be proven correct.
Can we now officially call Bush the "60 million vote man"? ;D
Just keep voting!
Go to the site and click the box at the top that says "General by Year".
Then Click "2004"
Click on "2004" on the top left for the election.
Blue is the traditional color for the incumbent party so it is correct although not common.
Knuckle dragging, Bible thumping, homophobes ... every damn one of 'em!
George W. Bush-60,418,140 50.99%
John F. Kerry----56,949,003 48.06%
Bush's margin is, at this point, actually shrinking. There are plenty of absentee and military ballots to go I assume.
CA did not report until the first week of December in 2000.
The margin is still the same about 3.5 million votes Bush over Kerry. The percentage has actually dropped a little according to this website
The colors swap every election. I think, though, that 2000 was such a watershed election, and that the blue state/red state phenomenon has been etched into people's memories, that the powers that be have decided that Republican will equal red and Democrat will equal blue. Permanently.
It's still 3.5 M...how is it shrinking?
I don't think it was until the 2000 election that the major networks all toggled the colors. Democrats, prior to that time, had been red, and the Republicans, blue... I think it had a lot to do with the fact that in most countries the Socialist/Communist/Progressive/Democratic/Labour parties are usually identified with red. I think there was a very deliberate attempt to disassociate the Democratic Party in the USA from the color red in 2000 and subsequently this year, for the purpose of obfuscating it's very real association with said parties globally. I don't think it's in their interest for people here in America to make the connection.
small slippage in Bush Popular Vote margin due to counting California votes; it was 3.56 million on election day, now it is 3.46 million (approx 3.5 million either way, with rounding).
Should bump up slightly as other votes are counted (CA is at 100% now)
Though it's depressing to live in a state that had 4.8 million Bush voters, and still went for Kerry: California.
Remember that, California haters that live in Red states. Bush got more votes in California then any other state in the Union including Texas.
If you use the mouse over u can see that the state is turning more Republican as a whole.
Because 3.5 million is a smaller percentage of the vote total now.
But my personal favorite, 1980 and 84....check out those numbers! That's what it's going to look like in 2008!
Actually Blue is the color used in most of the world for conservative candidates. Red is socialist/labor, Yellow is Liberal, Green is Green, Black is Fascist or authoritarian, Orange is Irish Protestant.
I would use Blue for GWB, Red for JFK, Yellow for the Losertarians, Green for the Greens, Black for Pat Buchanan (if Willie Green convinces him to run again), and maybe Gray for Nader (dull color for a thoroughly dull man).
There might be a fight over Pink -- would that be used by Barney Frank or by Jane Fonda?
Purple usually means royalty, so we could reserve that for the Kennedys.
The Michael Moore protest types could use Brown, to match their shirts.
Yah!!! NO he can go ahead and legalize 25 million illegals!! Just what I wanted. Then maybe he could pick a powder puff ball latino to run justice..er..oh..never mind.
No they don't. The short answer I have given before is that the Republicans were Blue from the time of Ike to Reagan in 1980. For most of that time the B&W TVs masked the color, but they became apparent to most of America in the 1968 election. In the 1984 Reagan/Mondale election some of the broadcast networks used Red for Republicans, some still used Blue for Republicans. Same thing happened in 1988.
By 1992 with the Bush/Clinton/Perot election the broadcast networks and CNN had 'standardized' on Red for Republicans and Blue for Democrats. The original reason for the shift was the complaints of the DNC in the 1980 election that the Red color associated with the Democrats was unfair because their weak stance on Defense matters made the Red color seem as socialistic or communistic in the middle-end portion of the Cold War.
I like Red! It is the color of action. Republicans are the the new revolutionaries!
I did not know that MN was so close in 1980.
Reagan nearly had a 50 state sweep.
Mondale 1,036,364 49.72%
Reagan 1,032,603 49.54%
Right now the website has it at 53.1% to 46.8%! Now that is sounding like a mandate, folks! The DNC/MSM was saying 51-48 is slim and not a mandate, but I guess the absentee ballots are coming in hot and heavy for the president, which accounts for the new 53.1-46.8 figures!
53.1% to 46.8% is the electoral vote percentage. BTW, when does the national vote tally have to be certified?
Aha! Right you are, but 51-48 is still a win and I'm sure we're all relieved that Kerry didn't make it. I believe the electoral college vote is certified on December 13 this year.
Yes it is. Very informative. I invite the curious to check out the election results for the years 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972, 1980. The Kennedy-Nixon election of 1960, graphically as well as statistically represented, is intriguing.
"glommed"??? Heheh... I had to look it up in the dictionary. :)
On DU, the Democrats were complaining that Bush keeps gaining. "Why are all the discrepencies in Bush's favor, they asked."
Can you believe it, they actually wrote "Bush"?
How much of the voter fraud went to Blue States...I know some of it was stopped.....but much of it wasn't. And W still came through.........Thank God......
This is totally irrelevant, but if you follow Sister Wendy's series on Art History that was aired on PBS. The thesis she propounds is that red was the color that the artists at the Birth of Liberalism --the French revolution,etc. selected to symbolize their movement. Remember the Red Flag of the Soviet Union. I think the blue for libs came from the Blue Dog comic strip that they adopted to symbolize of the twilight of the democrat party after the fall of Rostenkowski and Wright and the ascendancy of Newt Gingrich and the take over of the House by the Good Guys. As usual the Rats/MSM have tried to turn tradition topsy-turvy-- and this time succeeded.
I made the connection, and I've complained more than once that we are the red voters.
Frankly, I think the color-code stuck after USA Today published the 2000 election returns by county. The country was so dramatically "red" that the color assignment stuck.
