Take a look at this great diary by daser with a 50-state chart with the distribution of Kerry voters: Daily Kos: Kerry Voters Exist in “Red” States. The chart makes you think differently about the Dem turnout in the states that Bush won. Many of the Red states recorded more votes for Kerry than ones that went Blue. North Carolina, for instance, was #12 in votes for Kerry.
