CNN.com Election 2004: Thanks to Jeff for pointing out this page. It shows a great breakdown of voter trends. Here are my immediate takeaways:
- The only age group Kerry took was 18-29. Good job to the young voters out there! I hope you weren’t just listening to Puff Daddy; he wasn’t actually going to kill you.
- Nice gradual increasing slope of Bush approval with income.
- 67% support from those that listed religion as “none”. This is in dramatic contrast to the 8% of people that listed “Religious Faith” as the MOST IMPORTANT QUALITY for a president. Can you believe that?
- Overall, people that were concerned with the economy heavily favored Kerry. Why do so many people care about terrorism, religion, abortion, etc when the economy has a much greater affect on daily lives?
