CNN Republican Debate - United States presidential election in Texas, 2016 - Netflix
The 2016 United States presidential election in Texas was won by Republican Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence by a 9% margin over Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, part of the November 8, 2016 General Election. Texas assigns its 38 Electoral College votes to the state's popular vote winner, but two faithless electors chose other candidates, making Texas the only state in 2016 to give Trump fewer than the assigned electoral votes. When the electoral college met on December 19, 2016, only 36 out of the 38 electors voted for Trump for president. Two electors defected, one to Ohio Governor John Kasich, and the other to Congressman Ron Paul. For Vice President, 37 electors voted for Pence, and one for Carly Fiorina. The primary of March 1, 2016 included the Green Party, in addition to the two major parties. Hillary Clinton lost Texas by a smaller margin than any Democrat since 1996 (though Barack Obama got a larger percentage of the vote in 2008), which analysts attributed to ongoing demographic changes, although other analysts cite evidence suggesting the real reason was Trump losing ground with college-educated white voters. Trump's campaign became the tenth Republican campaign in a row to win Texas, beginning with Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign for presidency.
