With Romney/Ryan set to lose both Massachusetts and Wisconsin (RCP has Obama up 20.6 points and 5.4 points respectively) we wondered if there had been another presidential race when a ticket lost the home states (read: state of residency) of both the presidential and vice presidential candidates and still won the election.

It isn’t that common, but it has happened relatively recently.

Now taking guesses in the comments.
