Kerry: "I won the popular vote in the battleground states by two percentage points." -- WRONG
Meet the Press ^ | 1/30/05 | John Kerry on Meet the Press

Posted on 02/01/2005 12:08:30 PM PST by tellw

SEN. KERRY: I lost, Tim, to an incumbent president by a closer margin than an incumbent president has ever won re-election before in the history of the country, and if you add up the popular vote in the battleground states, I won the popular vote in the battleground states by two percentage points. We just didn't distribute it correctly in Ohio.

Kerry is incorrect. If you add up the votes Kerry got in the 17 battleground states (AZ AR CO FL IA ME MI MN MO NV NH NM OH OR PA WA WV & WI), Kerry got 22,977,886 votes (or 49.4% excluding 3rd party candidates). In the same 17 battleground states, Bush got 23,445,587 votes (or 50.6% excluding 3rd party candidates).

"Battleground states" as determined by TIME Magazine

Election results added up from CNN.

Perhaps Kerry was counting New Jersey and Hawaii as "Battleground states."

Kerry is still trying to re-slice the baloney. Each slice gets thinner and thinner. I can already see through it.

I would suspect that he's labeling every state he won as a battleground state, and those he lost are right wing nut states.

I wonder what Kerry's screen name is over at the DU.

He would fit right in with the reality challenged nutjobs over there.

He also won the homosexual vote, the baby killers vote, the great unwashed vote, incarcerated vote, etc...

What's the point to his insipid rambling? His only presence on that show on that day can only be attributed to being on-air just in case there was problem with the Iraqi election, which there wasn't.

Ha, ha. Another Gore. Can't get over that he lost. I can understand Gore's psychosis a little bit better. He did lose by a very close margin and he won the popular vote. Well, maybe Gore and Kerry can start a support group--The Democrat Presidential Losers Club. They can have role playing--what I would do as president.

The problem with Democrats is the idea that they think they can "distribute the votes correctly." You do have to admit that they seem to have "distributed them correctly" in Washington state.

I"ll never forget hearing Clinton Justice Dept operative Eric Holder smugly predicting that "Kerry will win if every vote is counted." Here's a column that documents it:

http://www.aberdeennews.com/mld/aberdeennews/news/special_packages/election2004/polman/9999765.htm

There was no doubt in my mind that Holder was in on the fix. He knew the plans afoot for illegal Soros funded voters to steal the election.

Thank God Bush won (on many counts). But foremost, the crooks from the Clinton administration,, like Eric Holder, are not back in high government positions.

If you add in NJ and HI as "battleground" states, Kerry gets 25,022,160 votes in the battleground. But Bush still beats him with 25,233,900 votes. Closer margin, but Bush still wins.

Someone needs to develop a video game where, as Charlton Heston, you get to rifle down likenesses of Kerry, Gore, Dukakis, Carter, Mondale, maybe some rabbits, Gore again, Hilary, some Apes, Hilary, Kerry, some Apes that look like Hilary, and finally all segments of Michael Moore...which can be the final level.

This is genius, I'm off to the patent office.
