Electoral Map with Libertarian Option

This isn’t a popularity contest™

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.
