Is it higher because they've finally counted all the absentee ballots?

"Is it higher because they've finally counted all the absentee ballots?"

The various states have not finished counting all the absentee votes, but yes, Pres. Bush's vote total has risen by more than 2 million votes since election night primarily because of the late counting of absentee votes.

Bush's final vote total should approach 61.5 million.

How will that affect the final percentage? I'd love to see it get bumped up to 52/47.

The Daily Mirror will have to revise that "How could 59,054,087 people be so dumb" headline. They were off by about 2 million freedom-loving, gun-toting, God-fearing "dummies". Maybe they could just change the focus. As I recall, the entire U.K. population is just over 59 million. Maybe THAT'S who they meant?

"What does this make the final %? 52/48, 53/47.....?"

The vote % is still Bush 51% Kerry 48% because, of course, Kerry has also been receiving votes (especially in CA where Kerry is taking a majority of the absentee votes).

This does not diminish the truly staggering amount of votes that Pres. Bush has received. Not only has he garnered 11 million more votes than in 2000, Pres. Bush has also broken Pres. Reagan's 1984 record by nearly 6 million votes!

"Interesting that about 750,000 more Californians voted for President Bush than did Texans"

One truly amazing stat is that Pres. Bush received one million more votes in FL than he did in 2000--a 36% increase in four years!! Gov. Jeb and Chairman Ralph Reed did outstanding jobs in getting out the vote.

Here's the current totals I could find.

Bush - 60,840,129 -- 51%
Kerry- 57,453,966 -- 48%
3rd --- 1,123,218 --- 1%
Total 119,417,313 - 100%

Bush won by 3,386,163 or 3%

Totals will go higher and possible exceed the numbers you are indicating...but Kerry's count is going up too.

Saddens me to think that a scoundrel/treacherous traitor like Kerry also got more votes than the great Ronald Wilson Reagan.

6 million more than Ronald Reagan? That's disappointing to me because Reagan is and will always be my favorite president. How can this be? Reagan won by landslide, something like 40+ states in 1984, was it 48, 49 states?

And how can Bush have six millions more votes than Reagan and yet win only 31 states? It does not make much sense to me. I hope this does not diminish my all-time favorite president, RONALD REAGAN. I'm not very good with math.

The reason is two-fold: The US population in 2004 is much bigger than it was in 1984, and the voter turnout in 2004 was the biggest since the 1960s. Some states, like MN and WI, had 90+% of registered voters turnout on Nov. 2. Six states, mainly in the South, set new voter turnout records.

>>>>... Pres. Bush has also broken Pres. Reagan's 1984 record by nearly 6 million votes!

There are a lot more Americans today, then in Reagan's day and that means a lot more voters.

PresBush`s solid victory in 2004 and the GOP's Congressional pickups give the Republican Party a mandate to lead for at least the next two years. But Bush`s victory doesn't measure up to PresReagan's landslide victories of 1980 and 1984. What's great about about Bush getting 51%, is that it surpasses Clinton's 43% in 1992 and 49% in 1996. Clinton was a minority President, who was forced to play ball with Republicans. So far, Bush43 is wasting no time.

Ok. Got it now.

So, Reagan got a larger percentage of the total than Bush did. He also won more states and had more votes electoral than Bush.

To mention just the votes it don't make sense. I think percentages or votes electoral is more important.

OK so Reagan is still the champ.

Six million more votes sounds like a mandate to me.

But, be careful on the use of the word mandate. The only politician elected with a man-date was Gov McGreevy. :) Just heard this joke the other day.

Shouldn't that be 6,000,000?

My mistake.

You're talking about New Mexico.

>>>>OK so Reagan is still the champ.

You betcha!

In 1980 Reagan received 489 electoral votes. In 1984 Reagan received a record 525 electoral votes and 58.77% of the popular vote to boot! In those terms, with almost 119 million votes cast in 2004, Reagan would be close to ~70 million votes.

"But Bush`s victory doesn't measure up to PresReagan's landslide victories of 1980 and 1984."

I'm a big Reagan fan (worked on his campaigns as far back as 1976), but Reagan's victory in 1984 was more personal than party. As I recall, the Republicans lost seats in both the House and the Senate. This contrasts with Pres. Bush's stunning successes in 2004 and 2002. He is the first President since FDR in 1936 to gain seats in both houses of Congress while running for re-election. Pres. Bush is also the first President in a very long time to pick up seats in the House and the Senate in the off-year (2002) and general (2004) elections.

I'd be interested to see how much better W did in South Florida this time around. Their brush with the 9/11 hijackers and the anthrax attacks gave the WOT special significance down there, I imagine.
