Most Republican States 2019

Across the nation, U.S. citizens have different political beliefs. Some citizens lean more to the right – or Republican – with conservative values, while others lean more to the left and support the more liberal Democratic party.

While some states are pretty closely divided, there are others where the majority of residents support one party. One of the ways that this is measured is through the Cook Partisan Voting Index, also known as the CPVI. This measures how strongly a state leans toward one party of the other when compared to the entire nation. Following each election, this index is updated to provide the most accurate results.

CPVIs are calculated by taking a look at the average Democratic or Republican share of the last two presidential elections compared to the national average. Results of the CPVI are broken down by congressional district and by state. By using this data, you can quickly determine which states are more Republican or more Democratic.

Based on the latest CPVI data, Wyoming is the most Republican state in the nation. Following behind is Oklahoma, then Utah taking third place. Based on this information, the most Republican states in the United States are:
