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. Use it as a starting point to create your own 2020 presidential election 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.
