Trump won North Carolina by 3.66% over Hillary Clinton in 2016, making it his seventh-closest margin of victory during that election. Trump ended up winning 304 of the electoral college votes compared to Clinton’s 227 in 2016.

North Carolina had long been considered a Republican stronghold before Barack Obama won there in 2008. He then only barely lost it to Mitt Romney in 2012, affirming its evolving identity as a battleground state.
