US Election 2020 Montana profile: How state voted in 2016, demographics and more

Year of entry into union: 1889

Capital: Helena

Total electors: Three.

In 2016, the three electors from Montana pledged to vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence for president and vice-president respectively.

How Montana votes: Red. Montana has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1996.

Demographic breakdown: 89.4 percent White and 6.3 percent Native American.

Fun fact: Although historically with the Democrats thanks to support from unionised miners and railroad workers, Montana has been a Republican stronghold in the last few decades. Democratic nominees have won Montana only twice since 1952 — with Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and with Bill Clinton in 1992.
