The voting patterns of the 2004 election showed little that commentators would not have predicted in terms of which group voted for which candidate. Those less well off tended to put their faith in John Kerry while those earning above average incomes supported George Bush. Minority groups went with Kerry while Bush received the majority of support from the white voters of America. Union members tended to go for Kerry.
