The Associated Press has called the states of Tennessee and Alabama for Republican incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 General Election.

Tennessee

The AP declared President Donald Trump the winner of Tennessee as soon as polls closed in the state, even though election officials there had yet to release any results from Tuesday's presidential contest.

The news agency did so after results from AP VoteCast and an analysis of early voting statistics confirmed expectations that the state's longstanding political trends in favor of Republican presidential candidates will hold.

VoteCast, the AP's wide-ranging survey of the American electorate, captures voters' choices and why they made them.

Bill Clinton in 1996 was the last Democratic presidential candidate to win Tennessee. Trump carried the state by 26 percentage points in 2016.
