I'm updating this page with the info here:[1] Kevin Baas | talk 20:59, 2004 Oct 28 (UTC) Actually, I don't have time. Can someone else update it? Kevin Baas | talk 21:02, 2004 Oct 28 (UTC)

the table[edit]

Endorsments
  2004 2000
Bush Gore Neutral,
Unknown
Bush 189 93 8 88
Kerry 208 43 94 71

Do the "2000" values only mention the newspapers which had switched party endorsements? The table is quite perplexing. ✈ James C. 19:29, 2004 Nov 6 (UTC)

revised table[edit]

2004 vs. 2000 Party Endorsements
Same Changed 2004 Totals
Bush (R) 93 96 189
Kerry (D) 94 114 208

Yes, I removed and condensed a bunch of stuff. I felt the table's clearest purpose was showing which newspapers "changed sides," and tried to emphasize that. But I'm still not sure if the table is easy to interpret, or if I've trimmed too much. What do you all think? ✈ James C. 06:27, 2004 Nov 7 (UTC)
