Among his observations:
In the safe Bush states (213 electoral votes) and the safe Kerry states (179 electoral votes), a similar pattern prevailed. In both sets of states, Mr. Bush increased his vote share by more than Mr. Kerry did, prompting Mr. Barone to observe: “The 2004 results showed the red states getting redder and the blue states getting less blue.”
And he noted that Bush won although anti-Bush forces spent “more than $55 million above what the pro-Bush forces spent.”
