In case you, like me, were wondering if the general perception of pro-Kerryism in Albuquerque (as measured by lawn signs, bumper stickers, and other environmental ambience) was correct–well, it was.

John Kerry: 132,404

George W. Bush: 121,610

Ralph Nader: 1,462

John Kerry: 370,457

George W. Bush: 376,577

Ralph Nader: 4,059
