Encyclopedia > United States presidential election, 2004, in Pennsylvania

By voting for Senator John F. Kerry, Pennsylvania was the only one of the three major swing states (the other two being Ohio and Florida) to choose the Democratic challenger. This victory can be attributed to the overwhelmingly Democratic cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. If Philadelphia were excluded, President George W. Bush would have won Pennsylvania by a fairly slim margin, with 2,663,748 versus 2,395,890 for Kerry.
