Actually, I think Vermont is the only state where Bush lost ground from 2000 to 2004.  Maybe Dean had something to do with it.

did you mean New Hampshire?

no, wait, I think you may be right.  I was thinking of state that flipped against Bush that was previously for him.

My view is that Vermont Republicans have always been "Theodore Roosevelt Republicans", or "Dewey Republicans" or "Rockefeller Republicans."

In that sense, even Republicans in Vermont have been somewhat liberal.

He also lost ground in South Dakota, just as an aside.

Also lost ground in Montana, if you count Buchanan's votes in 2000 as going to Bush.

It's not that Vermont has become liberal. It's that Vermont has become a place for the Democratic party.

Vermont swung from 72% for Eisenhower and 59% for Nixon to 66% for Johnson, which is probably one of the bigger swings of any state in that time period.

Vermont Republicans are part of the dying breed of Moderates.
