Broadband Users Voted for Kerry
Broadband Users Voted for Kerry

WebPro News reports on study relating Internet connection speed to the way people voted for president last year.
Eight states had broadband penetration over 35% - all voted for John Kerry in 2004
Eleven states had broadband penetration at or below 20% - all voted for George Bush in 2004
Cumulative broadband penetration in states that voted for Kerry was 33% - compared to 25% in states that voted for Bush
"This study will be more interesting in 2008 as broadband use grows more widespread. With over 40 million broadband subscribers now, current penetration rates can only be expected to grow."

3. I apologize for STM's pottymouth, Comer.
He can't always clench off his emissions.

9. makes sense, of course
since the greatest amount of broadband avaliability is in cities and inner suburbs, which overwhelmingly went to Kerry. it would be like doing a study of cell phone users in 2000, there were more likely to be urban and educated (unlike now when service has spread everywhere) therefore more likely to support Gore.
