No matter what the candidates did, the states that went with Bush in 2000 largely stayed with Bush.  Those that went with Gore in 2000 largely went with Kerry.  Every state has a deep seated political indentity.  Even 9/11 was not enough to change the voting patterns of the states.

Actually there has been a pretty big swing to the Red States.  Iowa, Ohio, Florida, and New Mexico all picked up significantly.  In IA and NM it flips the state to Red.

The Red states have also picked up electoral votes due to the 2000 census as well.

Unfortunately 9/11 isn't enough to overcome the sheer Bush hatred.

There will be another Census in 2010 and expect a bunch more elctoral votes to flee NY, PA, MI and other blue places for the sunny south.

Just New Mexico and Idaho.  Wisconsin was close.  But states like NC and GA and FL gained electoral votes from the Census while PA and NY lost votes.

How many went with Bush in 2004 went with Kerry this time?  New Hampshire & Nevada?

Yes, the census brings about more political change than campaigning.
