President Donald Trump has won the swing state of Florida. NBC News and Fox News are projecting that the Democrat has succeeded in carrying the battleground state.

The voters of Florida have picked the candidate who went on to become president in every election since 1964, except for the three-way 1992 race between George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Ross Perot.

In 2000, the state received national attention with the protracted recount, which was eventually decided by the Supreme Court in the Bush v. Gore decision.

Florida saw another tight election result in 2016 when Donald Trump bested Hillary Clinton by 112,911 votes out of more than nine million ballots cast.

In 2020, both candidates vigorously contested the Sunshine State, with the Trump campaign holding large boat parades while the Joe Biden campaign sought to campaign while following COVID-19 guidance from medical professionals.
