New York voting results
2010 Census Reapportionment: New York lost two electoral votes, giving it 29 through the 2020 presidential election. This is the 7th consecutive Census where New York has lost two or more electoral votes.
New York, one of the 13 original colonies, joined the Union in July 1788. However, the state did not choose electors in the first election due to an internal dispute. In the 1810 census, New York became the nation’s most populous state, and had the most electoral votes from the 1812 election until the 1972 election, when it relinquished that distinction to California. Texas surpassed New York in those numbers in 2004. Like many other northeastern states, New York’s electoral clout has diminished in recent years. New York has been primarily a “blue” state ever since the Great Depression, only siding with a losing Republican when it chose its then-current governor Thomas E. Dewey over Harry S. Truman in 1948. In 2012, Barack Obama easily defeated Mitt Romney by 26% in the state.
