Three states are poised to break records this cycle for the longest consecutive presidential winning streak by one of the two major parties. In Maryland, the state is set to back the Democratic nominee for an eighth consecutive cycle since 1992, breaking a tie with a mark set from 1868-1892. Likewise, Colorado is expected to vote Democratic for a record fourth consecutive cycle, besting the party’s three-cycle stretch also achieved from 1908-1916. For the Republicans, if Montana votes for Trump it will be the seventh straight GOP victory since 1996, eclipsing the party’s six-cycle streak from 1968-1988. Twenty other states are in midst of their longest Republican presidential winning streaks with 13 additional states currently holding Democratic records.
