Seven Statistics Why Donald Trump Won the White House

Here is a list of seven statistics that stand out from Donald Trump’s Election Day victory over Hillary Clinton:

  1. Zero: number of times Clinton campaigned in Wisconsin. Wisconsin went to Trump in the Electoral College.
  2. 2 hours, 41 minutes: time passed between the Decision Desk HQ calling the Pennsylvania returns for Trump at 10:55 pm before the Associated Press called it at 1:36 am.
  3. 74,000: Margin of victory for Trump over Clinton in Pennsylvania, a flip from Obama-Romney in 2012.
  4. 68: The Trump GOP wave has led to the GOP taking control of 68 of 99 state legislatures in the United States.
  5. 33: The GOP holds control of both state legislatures in 33 states out of 50, up from 31 states from the last election cycle.
  6. 1: Club for Growth was the sole major ad buyer in Wisconsin when the RNC pulled funding in late October and early November, which appeared to play a strong role in Republican Senator Ron Johnson’s shocking re-election victory.
  7. 51: the number of Republican senators, which means the Republicans control all three branches of government (the House of Representatives, Senate, and White House).
