This symposium, "Voting Gaps in the 2004 Presidential Election", takes an in-depth look at the political beliefs of another oft misunderstood group: the American voter. Our six contributors study the sharp differences in partisanship and voting behavior which often emerge around commonplace demographic characteristics such as gender, worship attendance, and age. These studies of voting based on gender, religious attendence, income, and locale show that Americans are divided on a wide range of political fronts that go beyond the simplistic "red state, blue state" rubric.
