Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) won the presidential election in New Mexico on November 3, 2020.
Between 1912—the first year New Mexico cast electoral votes in a general election for president—and 2016, New Mexico voted for the winning presidential candidate 88.89 percent of the time, one of the highest accuracy rates in the country. The state favored Democrats in every presidential election between 2000 and 2016, except 2004 when George W. Bush (R) won the state over John Kerry (D), 50 to 49 percent.
Hillary Clinton (D) won the state with 48.3 percent of the vote in 2016. Donald Trump (R) received 40.0 percent of the vote, and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson—who served as governor of the state as a Republican from 1995 to 2003—received 9.3 percent.
