Illinois is reliably blue thanks primarily to Chicago, one of the country’s largest cities. As a result, Hillary Clinton won the state easily, taking 55.83% of the vote. Donald Trump, while taking far more counties statewide (which is a typical Republican trend in most states), only took 38.76% of the popular vote. Illinois is not considered to be a swing state in 2020.
Early on, the race seemed heated in IL, but as the field was whittled down to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, the establishment candidate was massively favored going into the March 17 election per the DNC primary odds. As expected, Joe Biden won easily.
The Illinois GOP primary was held on March 17, 2020. President Donald Trump was the favorite, and just as the Republican primary odds predicted, Big Orange won bigly, taking a massive 96% of the vote and all 67 delegates.
