Florida, in a bit of history repeating (see 2000), was a major swing state for the 2016 Presidential election, helping push Donald Trump to victory. In the hotly contested state, Trump secured 49.02% of the vote, while Hillary Clinton got 47.82% of the vote.
Many pundits claim that Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate, contributed to the narrow Republican margin by siphoning off 2.2% of voters from the GOP, while the Green Party’s Jill Stein took away 0.68% of the Democratic vote. With or without third parties, Florida will be a major battleground state in 2020.
Because FL has mail-in balloting, many voters chose candidates that are no longer running. Michael Bloomberg got 8.4% of the FL vote, while Pete Buttigieg got 2.3% and Elizabeth Warren got 1.9%.
The Florida Democratic primary wasn’t particularly close, as Joe Biden won the state easily, despite a lower-than-usual elderly turnout due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The following odds were hosted at Bovada.
Since 2016, the political landscape has changed dramatically and has shown us to expect the unexpected. That said, it was unlikely that President Donald Trump, the incumbent, would be credibly challenged, and his Republican primary nomination odds in FL were extremely high. Trump easily won the FL GOP primary with 93.8% of the vote.
Since FL is one of the bigger states as far as electoral college votes go, it is probable that the premium sportsbooks we review here will offer betting lines on who will win the state general election. Futures odds may start cropping up as early as mid-2020.
