Hillary Clinton ran a mediocre campaign, beating Paul Ryan except with decreased votes and a much smaller popular vote majority. She attracted 49% of the vote ( from 57% in 2016) with 44,664,358 votes. She got 300 electoral votes ( from 337 in 2016) and she carried 25 states + DC ( from 23 + DC in 2016).
Paul Ryan managed to mop up the failure of Republicans from Donald Trump in 2016 with a very successful campaign. He gained 46% of the vote ( from 32% in 2016) with 41,929,806 votes. He got 227 electoral votes ( from 141 electoral votes in 2016) and he carried 24 states ( from 19 in 2016).
Austin Petersen ran a failed campaign, placing the Libertarians back in the minority. The media blamed this on popular Gary Johnson choosing not to run. He gained 5% of the vote ( from 11% in 2016) with 4,557,587 votes. He got 11 electoral votes ( from 64 in 2016) and he carried 1 state ( from 6 in 2016). The Libertarians sole state was now Arizona.
