The numbers you’re about to see are the changes in party identification since 9/11 in key swing states for the 2004 election. Although I have often said that I believed 9/11 moved America a couple of steps to the right, even my jaw dropped when I saw this[1]…

I have to tell you, folks; those are ugly, ugly looking numbers for the Dems. No wonder Hillary and Gore don’t want to run against Bush in 2004…
