2004 United States presidential election in New Jersey

The 2004 United States presidential election in New Jersey took place on November 2, 2004, was part of the 2004 United States presidential election. Voters chose 15 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president. New Jersey was won by Democratic nominee John Kerry by a 6.7% margin of victory. Prior to the election, most news organizations considered it as a state Kerry would win, or a blue state. Although due to the impact of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the resignation amidst scandal of Governor James McGreevey, the state was considered an interesting race. Polls showed Senator John F. Kerry with a slim lead throughout the campaign and the Republicans invested some campaign funds in the state. In the end, Kerry took New Jersey by a comfortable margin. To date this is the last time the Democratic margin of victory was less than 10%; as of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which the Republican candidate won Somerset County.

New Jersey 2004 Democratic primary There were 12 news organizations who made state-by-state predictions of the election. Here are their last predictions before election day. D. C. Political Report: Slight Democrat Associated Press: Solid Kerry CNN: Kerry Cook Political Report: Likely Democrat Newsweek: Leans Kerry The New York Times: Leans Kerry Rasmussen Reports: Kerry Research 2000: Solid Kerry The Washington Post: Kerry Washington Times: Solid Kerry Zogby International: Kerry Washington Dispatch: Kerry Kerry won most of the pre-election polls taken in this state, but by small margins; the final 3 polling average showed the Democratic leading 49% to 42%. Bush raised $5,934,011. Kerry raised $6,513,274. Neither campaign visited this state during the fall campaign. Kerry was dominant in the urban centers of the state in Essex and Camden Counties. However, Bush made inroads in Bergen County, where many wealthy residents reside, in other South Jersey counties. Bush controlled rural parts of the state, such as the Northwest and Salem County.

Monmouth County's wealthy population and Ocean and Cape May Counties' older population contributed to Bush's relative success in this Democratic state. This would be the first election since fellow Democrat John F. Kennedy from Massachusetts did so in 1960, when a Northern Democrat won the state of New Jersey; the previous three Democratic presidential candidates to carry the state were all from the South though New Jersey is a northern state. Kerry won 7 of 13 congressional districts. Technically the voters of NJ cast their ballots for electors: representatives to the Electoral College. NJ is allocated 15 electors because it has 2 senators. All candidates who appear on the ballot or qualify to receive write-in votes must submit a list of 15 electors, who pledge to vote for their candidate and his or her running mate. Whoever wins the majority of votes in the state is awarded all 15 electoral votes, their chosen electors vote for president and vice president. Although electors are pledged to their candidate and running mate, they are not obligated to vote for them.

An elector who votes for someone other than his or her candidate is known as a faithless elector. The electors of each state and the District of Columbia met on December 13, 2004, to cast their votes for president and vice president; the Electoral College itself never meets as one body. Instead the electors from each state and the District of Columbia met in their respective capitols; the following were the members of the Electoral College from the state. All 15 were pledged for Kerry/Edwards.

47 Canal

47 Canal is a contemporary art gallery in New York, NY. It was founded in 2011 by art dealer Oliver Newton. In 2009, Lee began organizing performances and art exhibitions in her studio building in Downtown Manhattan. An artist-run project space, 179 Canal Street. 179 Canal’s first exhibition, Nobodies New York, was organized by Josh Kline, opened on May 1, 2009. It featured Anicka Yi, Antoine Catala, Amy Yao, other artists whom Kline was in dialogue with at the time. Other notable events held there include solo exhibitions by Antoine Catala, Debo Eilers and Kerstin Brätsch's first collaboration as KAYA. In April 2010, Anicka Yi and Josh Kline participated in a two-person exhibition entitled Loveless Marriages; the critic Joanna Fiduccia remarked that this evoked "a spirited irreverence that serves as a foil for deeper critical juices."179 Canal closed in 2010 after its landlord, who had offered reduced rent throughout the gallery's first year, informed Lee that she could only continue to use the space at market rate.

In October 2010, Matthew Higgs invited Lee to curate 179 Canal / Anyways, a group exhibition at White Columns, a nonprofit organization in New York's Meatpacking District. This "anti-retrospective" encapsulated 179 Canal's "roaming eccentricity," according to critic Colby Chamberlain. In December 2010, 179 Canal participated in NADA Miami, showing works by Anicka Yi, Nolan Simon, Michele Abeles, as well as a collaborative photo project initiated by Margaret Lee; the gallery received a nomination for “Best Alternative Space of the Year” at Rob Pruitt’s Second Art Awards at the Guggenheim. In 2011, Lee founded 47 Canal as a commercial project with her partner Oliver Newton; the name change represented the gallery's new address at 47 Canal Street in Manhattan's Chinatown. Many artists who had shown at 179 Canal were given exhibitions in the gallery’s first year of operating, such as Josh Kline, Anicka Yi, Michele Abeles. A younger generation of New York-based artists were introduced to the gallery’s program during this period, including Amy Lien & Enzo Camacho and Stewart Uoo.

In 2014, 47 Canal retained its name. The first exhibition at this venue was New Feelings by Antoine Catala, a "series of experiments in sculpture and video" that incited viewers "to feel, both figuratively and through machines."While growing, the gallery continued to stage noncommercial performances alongside its exhibition program, such as by Sadaf H. Nava and Joe Heffernan, as well as fashion presentations by the New York-based label CFGNY. In May 2016, Josh Kline presented Unemployment; the solo exhibition, which featured "uncanny" sculptures of 3D-printed human forms wrapped in plastic and a vinyl chair stuffed with shredded tax documents, was described by The New Republic as "a pointed portrait of what creative labor looks like in the gig-based economy, with all its shortcuts and crutches."In 2017, 47 Canal introduced a wave of new artists to its program, including Janiva Ellis, Elle Pérez, Wang Xu and Cici Wu. In the same year, the gallery reopened its original space at 47 Canal Street.

It held exhibitions at both locations while maintaining offices at 291 Grand Street, before letting go of its 47 Canal Street location once again in 2018. This same year, Danielle Dean mounted her first solo exhibition at entitled Bazar. In the words of David Everitt Howe for Art in America, this "took the catalogues the iconic French department store Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville has produced between the late nineteenth century and today as a lens through which to view the entangled histories of consumerism and racism."Three artists represented by 47 Canal were included in the 2019 Whitney Biennial, curated by Rujeko Hockley and Jane Panetta: Josh Kline, Janiva Ellis, Elle Pérez. Artworks by Anicka Yi and Antoine Catala are included in May You Live in Interesting Times, curated by Ralph Rugoff for the 58th Venice Biennale. 47 Canal Street, 2nd Floor 291 Grand Street, 2nd Floor Artists who have exhibited at or are represented by 47 Canal include: Michele Abeles Alisa Baremboym Antoine Catala Xavier Cha Danielle Dean Tyler Dobson Gregory Edwards Janiva Ellis John Finneran Josh Kline Ajay Kurian Shimon Minamikawa Elle Pérez Trevor Shimizu Nolan Simon Stewart Uoo Cici Wu Amy Yao Anicka Yi Amy Lien & Enzo Camacho KAYA BFFA3AE
