It wasn't the landslide victory Bush supporters were hoping for but it's a victory none the less. Bush supporters say the win was due partly to the fact volunteers were at most of the poll stations, handing out flyers and talking with voters -- whereas McCain volunteers didn't have as big of presence. GOP leaders say one factor that might have hurt McCain was his reference to the Reverend Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson as agents of intolerance for distorting his record on abortion. But Bush and McCain supporters view the situation differently.
