ⓘ 2004 United States presidential election in Vermont

The 2004 United States presidential election in Vermont took place on November 2, 2004, and was part of the 2004 United States presidential election. Voters chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Vermont is the home state of U.S. presidential candidate and anti-war advocate Howard Dean, the former Governor.

Vermont voted for the democratic candidate, Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, over incumbent Republican President George Bush in Texas.

Kerry got 58.94% of the votes Bushs 38.80%, a Democratic victory margin of 20.14%.

Kerry also covered 13 States, 14 counties, breaking 6 of them 60%. Kerrys strongest County was Windham County, which he won with 66.43% of the vote Bushs 31.22%. Only one County voted for Bush, sparsely populated Essex County in the northeast of the state, where Bush won with 54.17% of the votes.

A state with a strong liberal and anti-war tendencies, Vermont was third as the most democratic state in the country in the elections of 2004, it results that the state is doing about 23% more democratic than the nation. He also had a strong democratic swing of any state in the country against Bush, compared with the 2000 result. Even as Bush increased his popular vote support from a 0.52% loss of al Gore in 2000 to 2.46% nationwide victory in 2004, Vermont has swung 10.20% against Bush, the state trend is 13.18% compared to a democratic nation. It foreshadowed the future trend of the state towards the dominance of the Democratic party, as Democrat Barack Obama will carry the state 67-30 in a landslide four years later, in 2008 and 2012.

Kerry, from neighboring Massachusetts, became the first Northern Democrat ever to carry Vermont. The previous three democratic presidential candidates to carry the state were all from South Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, bill Clinton of Arkansas and al Gore of Tennessee, although Vermont is located in the Northern state.
