The Delaware Presidential primaries were supposed to be held on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, but due to the coronavirus, these were delayed until June 2. The Primary election helped build presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s profile for the 2020 Presidential election, which will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. This page is a resource for Delaware residents looking to bet on the 2020 Presidential elections, primaries, and state general election.
The state’s general election will include a gubernatorial race, one US House seat race, one US Senate seat race, and several state government seats. For now, you will only find odds on the Republican and Democrat Presidential outcome, though as the general election nears, most books will offer at least some other DE action.

Delaware, as expected, heavily favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election, where she took 53.09% of the vote. Donald Trump took just 41.72% of the DE vote. That said, the lower two-thirds of the state favor Republican candidates, with the large population centers in the north consistently carrying Delaware for the Democratic side.
Delaware is a true blue state, having voted Democrat in their most recent presidential elections. Despite higher Republican voter registration in the state, Delaware is traditionally blue, and whoever’s on top of the Democratic primary odds boards (Biden) was likely to take the DE primary and should win the popular vote in the state’s general election in November 2020.
As expected, Joe Biden was the favorite in Delaware and won the primary. Delaware is Biden’s home, and he represented the state in the US Senate for 36 years before becoming Vice President under Barack Obama. Because he was the only Dem candidate remaining in the race, he was an even bigger lock to win the state he was already going to dominate.
Most would not consider Delaware a key component in the Presidential primary. There are only three electoral votes awarded in the state, and Delaware residents are simply not seen as having an influential voice in the larger national election.
However, especially on the GOP side, smaller states carry more significance, due to the “head start” that reliably Democratic California gives to candidates on the left. With Republican voter registration up in DE, Trump is likely to spend at least some time campaigning there. Trump easily dominated the GOP betting odds and won the party nomination in Delaware, for what little that’s probably worth in the general election.
