No Democrat has won Alabama's nine electoral votes since 1976. The state was one of the few that voted for George Wallace in 1968, when he ran on an anti-civil rights platform.

Alabama voters gave Donald Trump a resounding victory on Election Day. Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 26 percentage points, more than Mitt Romney's 22-point victory four years ago. John McCain won by a similar margin in 2008, and George W. Bush won Alabama by 25 points in 2004.

The state saw little polling in the 2016 cycle. A Washington Post poll in September gave Trump a greater than 20-point lead in the state.
