26. The Main Reason Why Kerry Lost
I Believe was because of September 11 and Bin Ladens October suprise that reminded everyone of 9/11 and how the whole country stood behind him that day, even the most liberal of democrats.

Even with this reason Kerry did not lose the campaign though, it definately effected the last minute swing voters, but long before mid October most peole already had their mind made up. Some major reasons Kerry lost was because of his heritage, "northern liberal" that no southern person would support, his failure to defend himself from the swifties, his failure to travel abroad, not just in the major states like OH,FL. And the fraudulent election that under no circumstances could Kerry have proved.

Overall Kerry ran a damn good campaign and I would support him again anyday because most importantly he gave me a vision of hope that he still fights to see succeed even today.
