Wisconsin has 10 of the 538 total electoral votes in the country.
Trump’s 2016 win in Wisconsin was a tightly contested one, as he beat Hillary Clinton by 0.7%. It was a surprise win for Trump in a state that voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 elections, the latter of which Obama won by 6.9%. Trump ended up winning 304 of the electoral college votes in 2016 compared to Clinton’s 227.
Prior to Trump’s 2012 win in Wisconsin, the last time a Republican candidate won the state in a presidential election was Ronald Reagan in 1984.
