Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 Presidential Election over Hillary Clinton was the upset of a young century. The underdog businessman went on to win in key swing states Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin (all states he would narrowly lose in 2020 to Joe Biden) to secure the victory for the Republican Party. Numbers suggest a close race won by just 380,119 votes between these five states. The margin in Arizona was 91,234 votes adding to 211,141 votes in Georgia, 10,704 in Michigan, 44,292 votes in Pennsylvania, and 22,748 votes in Wisconsin (these states accounting for 73 total Electoral Votes). Even losing Michigan (16 EC) and Wisconsin (10 EC) would have secured a Trump victory over Clinton. While Arizona and Georgia have traditionally run red over the previous elections, the surprises were in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin which sealed the victory - though the overall margin here was just 77,744 votes.
