Biden won New Hampshire and 3 Western states, Trump takes Idaho

AP , Wednesday 4 Nov 2020

Democrat Joe Biden has won New Hampshire, California, Oregon and Washington state, while President Donald Trump has won Idaho.

He was awarded New Hampshire's four electoral votes, holding on to a state that President Donald Trump only narrowly lost in 2016.

New Hampshire was considered a 2020 battleground despite not going for a Republican presidential candidate since George W. Bush in 2000.

The three Western states of California, Oregon and Washington are all liberal states, while Idaho is conservative.

California has 55 electoral votes, the biggest haul of any state. It’s also the home of Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris. She served as the San Francisco district attorney and the state’s attorney general before winning election to the Senate in 2016.

Biden nets 74 electoral votes for the three Western states, while Trump takes four electoral votes from Idaho.
