It is interesting to note that the people who live in places that were the actual targets of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 didn't support Bush. NY has been on Orange Alert for three years now. Saying NY and the other blue states would never support a Republican is inaccurate. Reagan won every state except for one in his second run for the Presidency.
