Significance of State
"In 1968, the state sided with third-party candidate George Wallace. Since then, it has gone Republican in nine of twelve elections, voting Democratic twice for fellow Arkansan Bill Clinton and once for Jimmy Carter. In recent elections, it has become a solidly red state, with the Republican margin of victory increasing in each of the last four elections. In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by almost 27 points."
