I'm looking at which states put winning presidential candidates over the 270 EV mark. Compiled this data from watching various Election Night playbacks. Since it is a pretty arbitrary stat, it's interesting how often it happens to be Ohio.

2016: PA
2012: OH
2008: CA
2004: OH
2000: FL
1996: NY
1992: OH
1976: MS

If anybody can add to this list, I'd appreciate it.

Interesting that MS played that role one year. As for OH, it is an EV-rich state that votes near the national average, is often close, and therefore gets called late-- thus is particularly likely to be the deciding state.

Glad to know my state decided the most vapid election of our time.

Glad to know my state decided the most vapid election of our time.

I clicked randomly on parts of the 7-hour-long video, and what I found was funny enough.
For example, Illinois (which eventually went for Bush) very close during the vote-tallying. A Democratic pundit said that it would vote for Dukakis in the end because the Southern precincts hadn't been counted yet.
A Republican pundit complained that Bush didn't campaign enough in New York State, otherwise he would have won the state.
A host said if Dukakis couldn't win Arkansas, he couldn't win the election.
Plus, the black host predicted Bush's breach of promise of not raising the taxes.

1984: all the states that were called at 9 pm: VT, ME, NY, MD, NC, WI, IL, MO, AR, LA, SD, NE, WY, CO, NM.

By the way, wasn't NBC's map of the United States a real gem?



I also met many good ol' friends again:
Bill Clinton
Al Gore
Joe Biden
John McCain
Mitch McConnell
John Kerry
Dick Cheney
Jack Kemp

2004 actually varied by the network :


for NBC and Fox it was Nevada (they called Ohio earlier, and Bush's electoral count was stuck at 269 until they called Nevada which pushed him over the top)
