Minnesota

Minnesota swung right in 2016, but Hillary Clinton was still able to eke out a narrow victory with just 46% of the vote. The last Republican to carry Minnesota in a presidential election was Richard Nixon in 1972. This is the longest Democratic streak of any state in the nation. See 2020 primary results
