Consistent with the rest of the county, presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton swept nearly all of the Mountain View precincts, with landslide victories in Cuesta Park, Waverly Park and the western edge of the Monta Loma neighborhood. Senator Bernie Sanders won a slim majority in a few precincts, including the southern end of Shoreline West as well as the neighborhoods around Rengstorff park south of Central Expressway. Overall, Mountain View voted 59 percent to 41 percent in favor of Clinton.
With no opponents still in the race, real estate developer Donald Trump took the lead for the Republican primary in Mountain View over competitors, at 56 percent, taking the largest majorities in the Whisman area. Ohio Gov. John Kasich, despite calling off his bid for the White House in early May, managed to split votes with Trump in a few precincts, including the Blossom Valley neighborhood and among residents north of El Camino between Highway 85 and Calderon Avenue. Overall, Kasich took nearly 28 percent of Mountain View's Republican primary voters.
