The 2020 general election in Idaho will include one US Senate seat race, two races for the US House of Representatives, and numerous other statewide races. And, of course, it will be headlined by what’s sure to be the most contentious and hotly contested Presidential election of all time.
While the general election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the Idaho primaries took place on Tuesday, March 10, 2020. As expected, Joe Biden won the state, though Bernie Sanders performed better than most gamblers and pundits thought he would.

As one of the most staunchly Republican states in the US, the 2016 Presidential election in Idaho wasn’t close, with Donald Trump earning 59.25% of the vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 27.48%. Independent candidate Evan McMullin, who didn’t have much national name recognition in the wider election, did particularly well in the state, pulling in 6.73% of the Idaho vote.
The Idaho DNC primary moved away from the caucus format to a statewide election. Because Idaho is heavily independent, a political fringe candidate like Tulsi Gabbard or even an “outsider” like Andrew Yang was thought to play well in the state. However, the state was trending to the establishment, which was shown by the most recent numbers on the Democrat election odds boards.
The Republican Idaho primary took place on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020. Rather than having a caucus as they’ve done in the past, Idaho moved to a primary election format with a statewide vote. Of course, it didn’t affect the GOP election odds in Idaho, as the Gem State is heavily red. As such, incumbent Donald Trump won the primary easily, taking 94.5% of the vote.
