Idaho's electoral votes in U.S. presidential elections 1892-2016

Idaho has taken part in 32 United States presidential elections, voting for the winning candidate on 23 occasions (including all elections from 1904 to 1956), giving a success rate of 72 percent. Apart from when it voted for the People's Party candidate in its first election in 1892, Idaho has voted for a major party candidate in each subsequent election; voting Democrat ten times, and Republican 21 times. Since 1952, Idaho has voted for the Republican nominee in every election except 1964, and is considered a safe Republican state in modern elections, with Trump expected to win the Gem State comfortably in the 2020 election. Idaho was allocated just three electoral votes in its first five presidential elections, but has had four votes since 1912. As of 2020, no U.S. president has ever resided or was born in Idaho, although controversial 2008 vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, was born in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1964.
