The War Between Blue and Red

Before you read the Blue States and the Red States list, let’s find out how the naming of a state with color started!

The Blue States and the Red States are referred to as states of the United States whose voters predominantly choose either the Democratic Party (Blue) or Republican Party (Red) for Presidential and Senatorial Candidates.

The use of the term Blue or Red has been expanded to differentiate between states being perceived as Liberal and those perceived as Conservative. It is now seen that the “Democratic Blue” and “Republican Red” color scheme is now part of the lexicon of American journalism.

However, the fun fact is that neither of the party national committees has officially accepted these color designations, though informal use by each party is becoming common.

Nevertheless, both parties have adopted logos that use their respective colors i.e., a blue “D” for Democrats and a white “GOP” with a red elephant for Republicans.

The following list is tabled from the last Presidential Election 2020.
