Maryland

Maryland, one of the original 13 colonies, entered the Union in April 1788 and has participated in all 58 presidential elections. Maryland has been primarily a “blue” state since the founding of the modern political parties (around the time of the Civil War). Since 1960, Maryland has voted Republican only in the landslide wins of Richard Nixon in 1972, Ronald Reagan in 1984 and George H. W. Bush in 1988. In 2016, Hillary Clinton easily overcame Donald Trump here (60% to 34%).
