The 2020 United States presidential election in Nebraska was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia participated.[2] Nebraska voters chose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote, pitting the Republican Party's nominee, incumbent President Donald Trump, and running mate Vice President Mike Pence against Democratic Party nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his running mate California Senator Kamala Harris. Nebraska has five electoral votes in the Electoral College, two from the state at large, and one each from the three congressional districts.[3]

Trump carried Nebraska by 19 points on Election Day, down from 25 points in 2016. Due to Nebraska's system of allocating electoral votes to winners of congressional districts, Biden was able to flip one electoral vote in Nebraska's 2nd congressional district--anchored by Omaha--by 7 points, while Trump received the state's other four electoral votes. Prior to the election, all news organizations declared Nebraska a safe red state, while most organizations viewed the 2nd district as either Lean Biden or a tossup, or in other words, a key battleground. This is the first election in which both Nebraska and Maine would officially split their electoral votes.

Biden won only the two most populous counties in the state - Douglas County, home to Omaha, by 11 points, approximately the same margin Lyndon B. Johnson won the county with in 1964 and the best result for Democrats since that election, and Lancaster County, home to the state's second largest city and state capital Lincoln, where the University of Nebraska is located, by just under 8 points, another 56-year high for Democrats. While he didn't win the state's third largest - Sarpy County, a growing suburban county to the south of Omaha, which in all presidential elections from 1968 to 2016 except 2008 had backed the Republican candidate by at least 21 points, he reduced Trump's winning margin to only 11 points and won 43 percent of the vote there, again a 56-year best for Democrats. Biden also received more than 40 percent of the vote in two counties in the northeastern corner of the state - Thurston County with a Native American majority, and Dakota County with a large Hispanic population.[4]

Per exit polls by the Associated Press, Trump's strength in Nebraska came from Caucasians, who comprised 90% of the electorate, and specifically from Protestants with 70%. Post-election, many rural Nebraskans expressed worries about trade and the economy under a Biden presidency,[5] with 59% of voters stating they trusted Trump more to handle international trade.[6]

Nebraska was one of sixteen states where President Trump received a smaller percentage of the vote than he did in the 2016 election.[a]

Results

As expected, President Trump easily carried the state as a whole. However, because Nebraska (along with Maine) allocate their remaining electoral votes by congressional district, Joe Biden was able to win an electoral vote from Nebraska's second district, which covers the increasingly liberal Omaha metro area. Barack Obama also was able to win that district in 2008 before it went back to the Republican column in 2012 and 2016.
