28. Kerry conceded early the next day - so something is wrong with your memory.

He also did so only after the same experts who told Gore to unconcede in 2000 told him it was mathematically impossible for him to win - there were not enough uncounted votes left in Ohio - he was about 100,000 down. The greens still demanded a recount which barely moved the numbers - essentially proving the Democratic experts right.

As to Iowa, they were caucuses and 2 places were covered for hours on CSPAN - both went for Kerry - easily. As to your polling, it might be because of when you went out. Kerry was great meeting people one on one and he did that in late 2003 and early 2004.

I know people who canvassed for Kerry from the beginning - one observation they had was that they picked up many who were previously for someone else, but their "ones" remained with Kerry in very high - unusually high percentages.
