2004 NEP: FIRST TIME VOTERS AND THOSE WHO DID NOT VOTE IN 2000
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 02:11 PM by TruthIsAll
So just where did Bush get his 12 million votes?

Not from first time voters.
They voted for Kerry by 55%-43%

Not from those who didn't vote in 2000.
They voted Kerry by 57%-41%.

How the hell did Kerry lose the election?
He did better than Gore.
And Gore did better than Bush.

1. Every time I see figures like this,
I get more angry and more and more depressed.

Are we ever going to be able to prove this to America?
Do you think we have a chance?

It seems to me that the only people that believe this are those here on DU.

I know it's alot of questions, but do you think we are stuck with *?

2. No, is starting to spread out!
The incongruence between "*" "victory" and his current approval numbers IS looking worse every day.

THEY HAVE NO EXPLANATION FOR THAT CONTRADICTION!

5. We Need to Sue For our Rightful President!
Edited on Mon Jan-31-05 07:58 PM by Melissa G
Someone with Legal Standing needs to sue for our presidency. A coalition of mothers who have lost children in Iraq perhaps. Families whose children are being Left Behind by ****'s disastrous underfunded education policies, those who are about to be drafted by PNAC policies...
