John Kerry came closer to becoming president than Mitt Romney did. Kerry lost the 2004 election with 251 electoral votes to incumbent George W. Bush's 286. If one state — Ohio — had gone for Kerry instead of Bush, the Democrat would have been president. In 2012, Romney lost with 206 electoral votes to incumbent Barack Obama's 332. No single state could have turned the election for Romney.
