* The states with the highest success rates selecting U.S. President are Ohio and Nevada, the pair having picked the winning candidate in 14 of the last 16 (87.5%) national elections since 1960. Those states / districts (such as Washington, D.C.) voting strictly along party lines will generally have a poorer success rate.
** Strength Trending is not a measure of total number votes available to any one party in a given state but rather overarching trending patterns observed within the last three presidential election cycles.
