U.S. Presidential Election 2004

The much anticipated results of the US Presidential elections were finally declared late on November 8, 2016. The Republican Party has scored a landslide victory. Republicans Donald Trump and Mike Pence are going to be the next President and Vice President of the USA.

Following its decisive victory in Pennsylvania, the GOP looks set to hold sway in the US Senate as well.

Having secured 264 electoral votes already and leading in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Arizona, Donald Trump looks set to become the next president of the USA. He's just four more votes away from winning the elections.

The Republicans' dominance in the US House of Representatives is set to continue. While the party may find it difficult to retain majority in the Senate, continued Republican dominance in the House could hamper any legislative agenda taken up by Clinton, in case she is elected. On the other hand, Trump's victory could lead to a prompt demise of outgoing President and Democrat member Barack Obama's health reforms.

In what may come as another setback for Hillary Clinton, as per latest reports, Republican Pat Toomey has been re-elected to the Senate from Pennsylvania.

The Republican Party candidate George Walker Bush was re-elected as the President of the United States of America in the 2004 US election. He defeated the Democratic Party candidate John Kerry both by popular votes as well as electoral votes.
Regarding the counting in the 2004 US election, a few controversies arose, which were ultimately resolved confirming a win for George Walker Bush. After the 2004 US election, the Democratic candidate John Kerry and Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean had alleged that voting in Ohio was not a fair one. They even claimed that the results could have gone the Democrats' way, had the voting in Ohio been a fair one.

The Republicans faced no major problems in the nomination of their candidate since George Walker Bush was a popular figure. He earned his recognition as a wartime President because of his steps to counter the September 11, 2001 attack on USA. Officially, George Walker Bush was announced as the Presidential nominee at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City on 10th March 2004. For the position of the Vice President, Dick Cheney was nominated.

The Democrats took a pretty long time to nominate their final candidate for the 2004 US election. The candidates who were on the run for the Presidential nominees on the Democratic ticket included:
  • John Kerry, U.S. Senator of Massachusetts
  • Howard Dean, the former Vermont Governor
  • John Edwards, U.S. Senator of North Carolina
  • Rev. Al Sharpton of New York
  • Joe Lieberman, U.S. Senator of Connecticut
  • Dick Gephardt, the former U.S. House Majority and Minority Leader of Missouri
  • Bob Graham, U.S. Senator of Florida
  • Dennis Kucinich, U.S. Representative of Ohio

Finally, John Kerry was elected the US Presidential nominee over John Edwards and Howard Dean. John Edwards was nominated as the US Vice Presidency by the Democratic Party.

Few of the other parties who filed nominations for their candidates were the Reform Party, Libertarian Party, Green Party, Constitution Party, Socialist Party USA.

Before the 2004 US election, three debate sessions were held between George Walker Bush and John Kerry. During the debate, Bush was accused by Kerry of failing to win the international support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. However, Bush denied his allegations and alleged Kerry of focusing mainly on domestic issues. He also said that Kerry was not a decisive leader.

The final verdict of the 2004 US election showed that Bush had secured 50.7% of the popular votes and 286 electoral votes. The achieved votes were enough for George Walker Bush to be the US President.
