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

Year of entry into union: 1848

Capital: Madison

Total electors: Ten.

In 2016, Wisconsin’s electors pledged to vote for Donald Trump for president and Mike Pence for vice-president.

How Wisconsin votes: Swing state. In 2016, Wisconsin voted Republican. In the seven presidential elections prior to that, however, the state voted for the Democratic Party.

Demographic breakdown: 86.2 percent White, 6.3 percent African-American and 2.6 percent Asian-American.

Fun fact: The latest opinion polls in Wisconsin suggest that Democrat Joe Biden is ahead of Trump by over six percentage points. If Biden does win Wisconsin in 2020, the state will have voted differently for a third election in a row.
