2016 Electoral College map
As discussed on Meet the Press, 11/9/2014. Democrats have won states holding 242 electoral votes for the past 6 presidential elections. That 'wall' looks mostly safe at this early point, but Wisconsin may be in play. On the historically Republican side, Arizona and Georgia may be up for grabs. We (270toWin) would add that expanding the map is critical to Republican chances in 2016 as it removes the requirement that the party win Florida. Note that toggling Wisconsin between blue and toss-up takes the number of Republican winning combinations from 35 to 107. See The Road to 270 below the map.

Winner takes all. If you win the election in the state, you theoretically get all the electoral votes.
(In theory, you are just electing electors, and they could vote for anyone when they go to Washington to cast their vote. Very occasionally, some lone elector votes his/her own view, discarding the state decision - but that is VERY rare, and unlikely).
