Kentucky General Election Odds For 2020 + Primary Results

Kentucky is primed to have several seats across various branches of government up for grabs in the 2020 general election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. That said, the Presidential primaries were first, with elections to choose the DNC and GOP candidates taking place on June 23, rescheduled from Tuesday, May 19, 2020 (due to coronavirus lockdowns).

While Joe Biden easily won the Democratic KY race, you can still get Presidential betting odds online for several different markets, including the state’s November election outcome and other races and political props.

Important 2019 Elections in Kentucky

Early on, the Democrat primary betting odds showed a crowded field, though the leaders of the pack were names like Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and newcomer Andrew Yang. Action was brisk for the KY Democratic primary at election betting sites, but by the time the state’s delayed primaries rolled around, only presumptive nominee Joe Biden was left. He won by a large margin.

2020 Kentucky Republican Primary Results

There were no odds specifically for the 2020 Kentucky GOP primary itself, but there were and remain plenty of Republican party odds available. In KY, the major front-runner was President Donald Trump, who won the Bluegrass State easily with 86.6% of the vote, taking all 46 delegates.

2019 Kentucky Gubernatorial Election Results

Kentucky held its state-wide governor election on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. There were three candidates running for the position:

  • Governor Matt Bevin (R, incumbent)
  • State Attorney General Andy Beshear (D)
  • John Hicks (Libertarian Party)

Gubernatorial betting odds are not always available at the top offshore books, but for tight races, they are. Most odds for this race gave Bevin a slight edge, but Beshear prevailed with 49.2% of the vote compared to Bevin’s 48.83%.

Betting On The 2020 Kentucky Presidential Election

Sportsbooks will often carry odds for state electoral outcomes and other state-based races, including Kentucky and other southern states, especially if any local races are seriously contested. As of right now, only KY electoral odds have been posted at major election betting sites.

Trump And Kentucky

Kentucky is currently a Republican stronghold with a conservative demographic. In 2016, during the Presidential elections, Trump campaigned hard in the work belt of Kentucky and was able to receive a lot of support. However, domestic manufacturing and power plants have seen some hardships recently, with some in the media blaming Trump’s tariff wars and the coronavirus.

With the local job market suffering, Trump has expressed support for these businesses and workers, which means he will likely visit Kentucky several times during his 2020 campaign to rally his base and sway undecided moderates.
