Michigan

Michigan joined the Union in January 1837. The state voted primarily Republican in presidential elections until the Great Depression. From the 1930s through the 1960s, the state alternated periodically between the two parties. From 1972 through 1988 the state voted exclusively Republican, before becoming part of the 'blue wall' that voted Democratic in six consecutive presidential elections from 1992 through 2012. Donald Trump narrowly flipped the state in 2016, defeating Hillary Clinton by just 0.2%. This was the closest state by popular vote percentage that year. Joe Biden won by 2.8% in 2020, bringing the state back to the Democratic column.

Michigan has experienced significant economic turmoil since the 1970s and has seen slow population growth relative to the rest of the country. It was the only state to actually lose population in the 2010 Census. This trend has resulted in a reduction of electoral clout. After peaking at 21 in the 1970s, the state has shed electoral votes after each subsequent Census. A loss of one in the 2020 Census brings it 15 for the 2024 and 2028 presidential elections.
