The state of Pennsylvania has twenty electoral votes up for grabs, and they appear to be far from the reach of the Republican nominee. Although Pennsylvania is considered to be a battleground state, it has voted for the Democratic candidate in the last six elections.
The state of Wisconsin hands out ten electoral votes to the winner, and in election after election the Democrats scoop up those votes and dominate the state. President Obama had little trouble in both his bids for the presidency in winning the state of Wisconsin, and it appears Hillary Clinton, if nominated, will do the same. Wisconsin has been mostly Republican through 1928, but the state turned Democratic during World War II. From 1940 through 1984, Wisconsin voted Republican more often. But Democrats have won seven elections since 1988, even with the 2000/2004 races being tight. Each election since, the race was not as close, as Barack Obama won by 56%.
The big prize at the start of the 2016 Presidential election is the Iowa caucus. The first primary of the season starts here, and the last two elections were won by the Democrats. This state is a crucial turning point in the election as each of the two parties will elect their nominee. Iowa is currently a battleground state that usually leans Democratic in the presidential races, as residents have voted Democratic in five of the last six Presidential elections. President Barack Obama went on to defeat Mitt Romney 52% to 46% back in 2012.
These 10 states in which Republicans will definitely lose 2016 presidential elections will make it much easier this election to put the Democrats in the White House. The amount of states already positioning to vote for a Democrat give the Democratic nominee more than enough votes to take the election. States like New Jersey, New York, Illinois, California, Wisconsin, and Washington have chosen a Democrat candidate in six consecutive elections. With those states carrying a huge portion of the electoral votes, the Republicans are going to struggle right out of the gate.
