2016 Presidential Election Results

This isn't a popularity contest™

This map shows the winner of the popular vote in each state for the 2016 presidential election. It will be useful, down the road (or now if you are already thinking ahead), for creating a 2020 forecast.

Did Trump win 304 or 306 electoral votes? Trump won states (and one district in Maine) worth 306 electoral votes (this map). However, two Texas electors did not cast their actual ballots for him, so history will record Trump as winning 304 electoral votes. 

The 2016 historical interactive map shows the 'official' electoral vote, which Trump won 304-227, with seven total faithless electors.

About this Site is an interactive Electoral College map for 2020 and a history of Presidential elections in the United States. Since electoral votes are generally allocated on an "all or none" basis by state, the election of a U.S President is about winning the popular vote in enough states to achieve 270 electoral votes, a majority of the 538 that are available. It is not about getting the most overall popular votes, as we saw in the 2000 election, when the electoral vote winner (Bush) and the popular vote winner (Gore) were different.
