87. No Way
While he was not my first choice, I happily supported him when he became the nominee. Worked hard and did my part.

That being said, however, there was strong dislike of Kerry - I don't know why, don't really care, I just recognize it as a fact.

Many, many people disliked Kerry. Even some who voted for him. As an example (and there were many)two members of my family, one moderate one ultra, yet uninformed, liberal, really disliked Kerry.

I told them to fake it. I know they voted for him, but they could not support him with any enthusiasm.
