President Donald Trump has won four of Nebraska's five electoral votes, while Democrat Joe Biden has won one electoral vote from the state's Second Congressional District.

Nebraska is one of the only two states to split their electoral votes. Trump won two votes based on the statewide popular vote, which he won with 56.9%. Trump also won in the Third Congressional District (76% of the vote) and First Congressional District (52.8% of the vote).

Biden took home 56.4% of the vote in the Second District. In 2008, Obama won the 2nd Congressional District electoral vote by 3,376 votes.

In a statement to the Omaha World-Herald on Oct. 26 Biden said, “My commitment to you is this: As your president, I won’t give up on Nebraska. I’ll finally get this virus under control and protect your health care.”
