How Utah voted

In 2016, Donald Trump won the state with 46 percent of the vote, according to NBC News results, while Hillary Clinton received 28 percent. Evan McMullin, a “Never Trump” Republican and Mormon who mounted a third-party bid, garnered a significant 21 percent. A Republican stronghold, in part thanks to its sizable Mormon population, Utah last voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in 1964 when it backed for Lyndon B. Johnson.

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.
