Rhode Island was the last of the 13 original colonies to ratify the Constitution, entering the Union in May 1790. The state has been reliably Democratic since 1928, only voting Republican four times – twice for Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956, for Nixon in 1972, and for Reagan in 1984, when he won every state except Minnesota. In 2016, Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump by about 15.5%. While the state was by no means competitive, this was the closest Democratic margin here since 1988.

Rhode Island has 4 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
