Jim on History looks back to Election Night 2004, when the presidency came down to the state of Ohio.
Prior to the election, most polls showed the Buckeye state as the top swing state.
Ohio’s economic situation gave hope for Democratic nominee John Kerry, seeking to defeat the incumbent President George W. Bush.
In the end, Ohio became the deciding factor of the entire election.
Kerry conceded the state, and the entire election, the morning following night, as Bush won Ohio and its 20 electoral votes.
Had Kerry carried the state, he would have won the presidency with 272 electoral votes.
