The 2016 United States presidential election in Georgia was held on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, as part of the 2016 United States presidential election in which all 30 states plus the District of Columbia participated. Georgia voters chose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote, pitting the Republican Party's nominee, businessman Donald Trump, and running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence against Democratic Party nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and her running mate Virginia Senator Tim Kaine. Georgia has 16 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

Trump won Georgia by 5.13%, a smaller margin than Mitt Romney's 7.82% in 2012 and even John McCain's 5.20% in 2008. Clinton received 45.3% of the vote, making this one of the few states where she outperformed Barack Obama in 2012.[3] Trump's reduced margin of victory made Georgia one of eleven states (plus the District of Columbia) to vote more Democratic in 2016 than in 2012.[4] This trend would continue into 2020, when Trump became the first Republican to lose Georgia since 1992.

Analysis

The Atlanta metropolitan area in particular shifted strongly towards the Democratic Party, with Clinton becoming the first Democrat to win Henry County since Georgia native Jimmy Carter in 1980 and Cobb and Gwinnett counties since 1976 (when Carter won every county in the state).

Trump thus became the first Republican to win the White House without carrying Cobb County since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956, as well as the first to do so without carrying Douglas, Gwinnett or Rockdale Counties since Richard Nixon in 1968, and the first to do so without carrying Baldwin, Henry, Newton, or Sumter Counties since Ronald Reagan in 1980. The leftward shift in urban Georgia between 2012 and 2016 foreshadowed Georgia's transition from a Republican stronghold into a competitive (albeit slightly red-leaning) swing state.

Georgia weighed in for this election as 7.23% more Republican than the national average, despite the fact that from 1996 to 2012 it had voted to the right of the nation by at least 10 points.
