How Louisiana voted

In 2016, Donald Trump won 58 percent of the vote, according to NBC News results, while Hillary Clinton received 38 percent. Louisiana has consistently supported the Republican candidate in presidential elections, diverging in recent memory only to back Democrat Bill Clinton in both 1992 and 1996. The state has also voted for third-party candidates twice: George Wallace in 1968 and Strom Thurmond in 1948, both segregationists.

The expected vote is the total number of votes that are expected in a given race once all votes are counted. This number is an estimate and is based on several different factors, including information on the number of votes cast early as well as information provided to our vote reporters on Election Day from county election officials. The figure can change as NBC News gathers new information.
