The case for “mandate”: RealClear Politics has a table showing the popular votes from both the 2000 and 2004 elections, and a column with the change in percentage for Bush this year vs. 2000. In every single state, Bush got a larger percentage of the popular vote this year (even if just by .1 point, but as high as 7.8 points).

Whine as you may about a “deeply divided” country, but the fact is that this divide got shallower in the past 4 years. Don’t mistake a higher fever pitch of hate from the left for deeper division. Just because they’re louder doesn’t mean there are more of them. It may just mean they see the writing on the wall and are more desperate.
