How Many States Did Trump Win

How many states did Trump win in the 2016 election?

Donald Trump was elected President of the United States in November 2016. Trump won the electoral vote against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton 304-227. Donald Trump won the vote of 30 states while Hillary Clinton won 20.

While some historically Democratic states like California and New York stayed democratic in 2016, Trump won some crucial states that had previously voted for President Obama in 2012, such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

PVI is the Cook Partisan Voting Index. This measures how strongly a Unite States congressional district or state leans toward the Democratic or Republican Party compared to the nation. For example, if the national average is 49% Republican, and the Republican candidate of a state wins 58% of the two-party share, that state voted nine percentage points more Republican than the country, or R+9.

The states with the highest PVI that voted more Republican, or the most Republican states than the national average are Wyoming (R+25), Utah (R+20), and Oklahoma (R+20). The PVI of all 50 states in the 2016 election was R+3.48. Wyoming is the most conservative state in the US, having voted a Republican Party candidate for every presidential election since the 1950s (except for the 1964 election).

Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire were all even between Republicans and Democrats in the 2016 election. Trump ended up winning Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

The map and table show which states voted for Trump, which states voted for Hillary, and which were split evenly. In general, the northeast and west coast voted Democratic, and the Great Plains states and south voted Republican.
