Ohio, the Buckeye State, was a major election battleground - it has backed the winner of nearly every presidential race over the last 200 years, including Trump in 2016.
There was no surprise with Idaho, with its four electoral college votes - the state has backed Republican candidates in the last 13 presidential races.
