Additional findings include:
- If applied nationwide, a total of 78 electoral votes could be labeled as swing electoral votes.
- If applied nationwide, 24 states would remain without any swing electoral votes.
- Michigan would have awarded 12 electoral votes to Obama and 4 electoral votes to Romney in 2012.
- Given the partisanship of Michigan, Michigan would have had 4 swing electoral votes in the 2012 elections.
We will release a full spreadsheet of our initial results shortly.
