Which Battleground States Did Trump Win in 2016?

first_imgMichigan- Advertisement – As results of the United States presidential election began to roll in on Tuesday, many Americans were wondering how President Trump’s performance in key swing states compared with his performance in those states in the 2016 election.We can help with that. Here’s how Mr. Trump fared four years ago in six electoral battlegrounds:Florida- Advertisement – Mr. Trump won Michigan by the narrow margin of about 10,000 votes, even though Hillary Clinton had polled ahead there for months. It was the first time the Republican Party won Michigan in a presidential race since 1988.ArizonaThis former Republican stronghold has become a true battleground in recent years. Before the 2016 election, Democrats believed that they had a chance of flipping Arizona for the first time since President Bill Clinton carried it in 1996. But Mr. Trump won the state by 3.5 percentage points.PennsylvaniaMr. Trump narrowly won Pennsylvania on the strength of his performance in the deeply conservative and rural middle, even as he lost to Mrs. Clinton in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, two large Democratic cities. Florida is diverse but conservative-leaning — and almost always close in presidential elections. Mr. Trump won the state in 2016 by a margin of 1.2 percentage points, even while losing some of its most populous counties.North CarolinaMr. Trump won North Carolina by 3.6 percentage points. The state has cities with large communities of moderate professionals, Black voters and college students, but also large rural regions where there tend to be more white voters who also tend to be more conservative.WisconsinThe president narrowly took Wisconsin, a surprise flip in a state that President Barack Obama had claimed four years earlier by nearly seven percentage points. Mr. Trump lost the counties that contain the Democratic-leaning cities of Madison and Milwaukee, but managed to win over some rural Democrats.center_img – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Klopp skirts Shankly comparison as Liverpool bounce back to beat Bournemouth

first_img“We will never compare with this fella,” said Klopp on beating Shankly’s record. “It’s great. We didn’t think about the number before the game but after we can. It’s nice, it’s special, but today is a very good example, we have to fight hard.”We are not geniuses, but we can really fight and that’s all we have to do until the end of the season and see what we get from it.”The spread of coronavirus could have a big impact on the Reds’ title celebrations in the weeks to come with the possibility of games being played behind closed doors. But the abandonment of the normal pre-match ritual of handshakes was the only disruption to the Premier League calendar this weekend.Liverpool’s dip in form has coincided with a lack of clean sheets for Klopp’s men after a run of 10 in 11 league games between early December and mid-February. Jurgen Klopp insisted he will never compare himself to legendary former Liverpool manager Bill Shankly after the Reds bounced back to beat Bournemouth 2-1 and move within three wins of ending a 30-year wait for the Premier League title.A 22nd consecutive home league win broke the English top flight record set by Shankly’s Liverpool in 1972 and settled any nerves over the title race after a run of three defeats in four games in all competitions.Callum Wilson’s controversial early opener sent shockwaves around Anfield. However, the prolific duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane quickly turned the game around to open a 25-point lead at the top of the table. Topics :center_img The hosts’ backline was breached again after just nine minutes, although Klopp was rightly furious that VAR did not intervene to disallow the goal.Joe Gomez was knocked off balance by Wilson to start the move and the Bournemouth striker then had the simple task of tapping home Jefferson Lerma’s cross.”From my point of view it’s 100 percent a foul. It shows the problem with VAR. It’s not clear and obvious, I don’t know how that’s possible,” added Klopp.Defeat leaves the Cherries still in the bottom three and they were left to rue not making even more of a bright start as Liverpool’s stand-in goalkeeper Adrian turned over Nathan Ake’s powerful header.Bournemouth played a large part in their own downfall and settled Liverpool’s nerves when substitute Jack Simpson gifted possession to Mane in a dangerous position. Despite a poor pass from the Senegalese, Salah steered the ball into the bottom corner to mark his 100th Premier League appearance for the club in style.Eight minutes later, Liverpool led when Bournemouth again gave the ball away cheaply. Virgil van Dijk released Mane in behind and he kept his cool to slot into the far corner.”The two goals come from us having possession and they punished us on the transition,” said Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe. “It was a ruthless game for us today because I don’t think we did much wrong in the game.”The champions-elect still needed a brilliant clearance from James Milner to secure all three points as he sprinted back to clear Ryan Fraser’s lob over the stranded Adrian on the hour mark, which earned him man-of-the-match.”Millie changed the fortunes, hopefully,” said Klopp, whose side could even be crowned champions before they play in the league again if Manchester City were to lose against Manchester United, Arsenal and Burnley in the next week.last_img read more
