Ohio: Still a Red State

Ohioans went to the polls in record numbers, delivering 18 electoral votes to Donald J. Trump. While a record number of both Republicans and Democrats turned out, Republicans made more gains in the state legislature. See our Post-Election Report.

Republicans look to have picked up seats in the Ohio House to give them a record 65 R – 34 D votes.

Senate Republicans appear to have picked up one additional seat giving the upper chamber a 24 seat majority out of the 33 Ohio senate districts.

The distribution of votes throughout the Buckeye State is nearly identical as the result in 2016. Also similar to 2016, pre-election public polling suggested a dead heat or slight Democrat candidate advantage. In the end, Trump won by an 8% margin.
