That has been the sinking feeling I had. An entire country raised on the right to bear arms and blow things up doesn't change it's spots over night.

well, it appears our forum isn't filled with the average american, where we voted 3-15 for bush, he now even took the popular vote.

ah well, i would've hoped it would've been kerry, not that i think he was an extremely good candidate (i think the democrats can come up with somehting better, but they didnt want to because this election is so much harder to win then the next)

i wish the bush fellow all of luck, lots of intellectual advancement, and i hope he fares a more domestic course, america needs it. I sure hope they won't bring democracy to some more countries in the '4 more years 4 more wars' idea. but ah well, i haven't got anything to say about it, and i suppose we'll live trough another 4 years of him. Heck, it might even be more interesting and controversial with that guy on the throne, we dutch have something more to moan about, along with the murder of our own Theo van Gogh (a somehwat Michael Moore like controversial film maker) by islamitic extremists...

wtf

quote:
White evangelist/ *Born Again*
yes (0%) Bush (0%) kerry (0%)
no (0%) Bush (0%) Kerry (0%)

right... those who were born again havent reached age 18 yet, or what?

well, i'm glad both the youngest group, and the best educated group voted Kerry, gives america some perspective...

the moral value vote makes me wonder... Bush has better morals?? hmm, i'd like to hear them then...

intelligence being the least important quality... makes me wonder too...

interesting is also the 55-42 value of whether the war in Iraq is the war on terror... also nice to see are the overall pro stance vs abortion (54%) and homosexual marriage/union (60%), at least for those who think these should be possible in certain situations, though Bush wont care for those digits.

nice poll, good break :)

Indeed the only age group that favored Kerry was the "under 30" and only by 9% apparently unchanged from 2000 results so obviously Kerrys "rock the vote" was not all that effective.

Follows Churchills statement about liberals and conservatives that says basically- if you are under 30 and not a liberal you have no heart if you are over 40 and not a conservative you have no brain.... :wink:

I'm not sure I would call those with "post graduate" education the "best educated" altho it certainly does fit with the usually ultra liberal "academic types" and the "professional student" types who sit at universitys and tell all of us "common folk" whats wrong with the way we live and who as a group are probably the most out of touch with mainstream society... :twisted:
the moral value vote makes me wonder... Bush has better morals?? hmm, i'd like to hear them then...
I really believe this concept was more about Bush actually taking a stand on issues based on his "moral compass" while Kerry for the most part took a stand on issues based on todays poll results- I don;t think it was even about WHICH stand Bush took it was just that it was obvious that he had set beliefs and that he upheld them and found them important.

The most interesting thing to me was "Votes by Gun Owners" and the break down of the electoral votes by state.Seems that Kerry won all the states that the world considers as the US. Seriously, most of the world, when they think of the US, think of the New England states and West coast dismiss the states in the middle.
