Delaware Presidential Primary Delay And General Election Odds For 2020

2020 Delaware General Election Odds + Primary Delays

The Delaware Presidential primaries were supposed to be held on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, but due to the coronavirus, this has been delayed until June 2. The Primary election should help 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 primaries, though as the general election nears, most books will offer at least some DE action.

2020 Delaware Republican Primary Betting Odds

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 is expected to easily dominate the GOP betting odds and win the party nomination in Delaware, for what little that’s probably worth in the general election.

2020 Delaware Democratic Primary Betting Odds

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 is likely to take both the DE primary and the popular vote in the state’s general election in November 2020.

Right now, Joe Biden is the favorite in Delaware, as he represented the state in the US Senate for 36 years before becoming Vice President under Barack Obama. And because he is the only Dem candidate remaining in the race, he should be a lock to win the state he was already going to dominate.

How Did DE Vote In The 2016 Presidential Election?
