United States presidential election in Minnesota, 1984
|Elections in Minnesota|
The Democratic Party candidate, former Vice President Walter Mondale, narrowly won his home state over incumbent President Ronald Reagan by just 3,761 votes, giving him his only state victory in the election (Mondale also carried the District of Columbia). Minnesota was the only state not to back Reagan in either of his presidential campaigns.
Since all 49 other states went to the Republican Party in 1984, this established Minnesota's status as the state with the longest streak of voting Democratic. As of 2016, it still has not voted for a Republican presidential candidate since 1972. However, the District of Columbia has voted Democratic in all presidential elections since 1964, when it was first granted the right to vote for president.
