I wonder if Gayle has rethought her position on this subject in light of last night's events.

I just can't wait to hear what excuses the dems will make this time.

Speaking of popular vote, it seems that Bush has broken the all time record for total number of votes, surpassing Reagan. Also the first time since 1988 that the winner received over 50% of the votes.

I heard something that made me laugh out loud on my way home last night. Listening to the political talkers on the radio, they were talking about the reported increase in the young voters, and how the young voters likely vote for Kerry...

One guy predicted that if Kerry should win, Bush would likely win the popular vote with Kerry winning the electoral college vote.

I laughed out loud. Wouldn't that have been fun! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

<font color="blue">and as usual, ever since the Vietnam war ended, voters 18-23 voted at the blistering rate of 10% </font color>

<font color="blue">Yes, it would have been interesting to see if the Reps cried like some of the Dems have for the last 4 years /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif </font color>

Those are some truly meaningless stats
Kerry got the most votes ever for the losing candidate, also more than Reagan.

Ross Perot took a significant number of votes in '92 and '96.

And we all know what happened last year

You sound disappointed moblsv.

Well, here's a statistic that does matter. Bush 286 Kerry 252.

I read those stats and thought I had wondered into NewsMax again :-)
