Electoral Map with Libertarian Option

This isn’t a popularity contest™
The map at this URL was originally created for the 2016 election as a Trump vs. Clinton forecast. To create a 2020 map, visit the home page or begin editing below.

This version of our interactive map allows for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson to receive electoral votes. Use the buttons below the map to share your forecast or embed it into a web page.

The toss-up states in the map below are those that are expected to be the most competitive this year. We show New Mexico in the Libertarian color for illustrative purposes; it is the state where Johnson received the highest percentage of the popular vote in 2012 (3.55%). That color will rotate in each state, along with the two major parties.
