Three Way Race Electoral Map

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 a third candidate to receive electoral votes. Click or tap near 'Other' to choose from a few specific name/party options. Use the buttons below the map to share your forecast or embed it into a web page.

In the completely made-up scenario below, we started with the actual 2012 map. Trump has won PA and FL, while a 3rd candidate has picked off NV and CO. This keeps all three candidates below 270 electoral votes, and sends the election to the House of Representatives.

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. Receiving the most votes nationwide is irrelevant, as we have seen in two of the most recent five presidential elections where the electoral vote winner and the popular vote winner were different.
