The caucus, in general, is an outmoded concept, but a few states still use it. So if you’re looking for the Nevada Democratic primary, you’ll find that it doesn’t actually exist. Instead, Nevada still holds caucuses, and the NV Democratic caucus was contested on Saturday, February 22, 2020. While the state typically also holds a Republican caucus on the same day, the GOP event was canceled in a show of support for the incumbent, President Donald Trump.
With the caucus now concluded and Bernie Sanders taking nearly 50% of the vote in a crowded field, bettors can now shift their focus to Super Tuesday odds and general election futures at election betting sites.

Given that Nevada enjoys a Democratic state government trifecta (i.e. Democratic majorities in the Assembly, Senate, and governor’s office), Donald Trump did surprisingly well, winning all but two counties and taking 45.50% of the vote. Hillary Clinton won the state, however, taking 47.92% of the vote. Nevada could be a swing state in 2020, so you can expect both party candidates to campaign heavily there.
As predicted, the 2020 Nevada caucuses were a total wipeout in favor of Bernie Sanders, with the desert state feeling the…heat. With the contest moving to South Carolina before Super Tuesday, this is Joe Biden’s last real chance to make an impression. Meanwhile, Michael Bloomberg, who wasn’t on the ballot in NV, is going to go hard at Sanders, whether his aim is to win the nomination or simply force a contested convention so that the avowed socialist doesn’t get the DNC nomination. There are whisperings of a Hillary Clinton run should that happen.
There were no GOP betting odds for the Nevada caucus because the caucus was canceled. President Trump, as the incumbent, would likely have won by a large margin given his current NV polling numbers (92%), so the GOP arm in the state decided to use its campaign cash for other local elections that will be more contested for the party.
However, you can still wager on Trump election odds for the November general, which are currently posted at all the best political betting sites.
While NV residents have historically been able to bet at any number of Las Vegas and Nevada-based sportsbooks, the state doesn’t actually allow these books to offer political betting. As a result, Nevada bettors will need to use offshore election betting sites in order to wager on the 2020 NV general election.
