Kerry finished ahead in six counties (Cheshire, Coos, Grafton, Merrimack, Strafford, and Sullivan) to Bush's four (Belknap, Carroll, Hillsborough, and Rockingham). (detailed results)

Gov. Bush was thumped by Sen. McCain in the Feb. 1 New Hampshire Republican primary, but he rebounded in the Nov. general election, carrying this battleground state with a plurality of 7,211 votes (1.27 percentage points). Bush won 6 of the state's 10 counties. In the most populous county, Hillsborough (includes Manchester), Bush finished 3,024 votes ahead of Gore. Gore fared best in Cheshire county (Keene) and Strafford county (Rochester and Dover) and narrowly won Merrimack and Grafton counties. Nader's 22,198 vote showing may have tipped the balance to Bush.
