Had a Democrat been president in 2001, then 2004 would be on the blue side, not the red. The only reason he won the popular vote was an increase in national pride as a result of the response to the 9/11 attacks (IMHO)

And even then, Bush barely won 2004.

While he won the popular vote by 3 million votes (2.4%), John Kerry would have only needed less than 120,000 votes in Ohio to win the whole election.
