President Donald Trump has won Ohio's 18 Electoral Votes, according to projections by NBC News and Fox News.


The Buckeye State has long been considered a bellwether state, having picked the winning presidential candidate in every single race since 1964.

In 2016, Trump won Ohio's 18 Electoral Votes by over eight percentage points. Trump's victory in 2016 was the widest margin the state has seen since George H.W. Bush's 1988 presidential campaign.
