New York remained a [[Red states and blue states|blue state]], with Biden winning with 60.86% of the vote, while Trump received 37.75% of the vote, a 23.11% Democratic victory margin. Trump won more individual counties, taking 41 counties statewide to Biden's 21. Both Biden and Trump improved from their 2016 counterparts, with Biden receiving a larger vote share and margin of victory than [[Hillary Clinton]] in [[2016 United States presidential election in New York|2016]], while Trump earned a slightly higher percentage of the vote despite losing the state by a larger margin, due to fewer voters choosing third-party candidates. Biden largely improved over Clinton's margins in the more competitive Upstate region, whereas Trump's improvements largely came from the New York City metro. Biden flipped [[Broome County, New York|Broome]], [[Essex County, New York|Essex]], [[Rensselaer County, New York|Rensselaer]] and [[Saratoga County, New York|Saratoga]] counties from the previous election. Notably, an additional six counties ([[Cortland County, New York|Cortland]], [[Ontario County, New York|Ontario]], [[Franklin County, New York|Franklin]], [[Orange County, New York|Orange]], [[Suffolk County, New York|Suffolk]], and [[Warren County, New York|Warren]]) voted for Trump by fewer than 1,500 votes total; all six were decided by a narrow margin of fewer than 500 votes each. And for the first time since 1976, Biden is the first democrat to win the presidency without Franklin County.
