After the Iowa caucuses, the New Hampshire primaries are the most important elections in every Presidential campaign cycle. Even if a candidate doesn’t outright win in Iowa, a win in New Hampshire has historically been the death knell for that candidate’s primary opponents. Far more often than not, the New Hampshire primary winner goes on to capture their party’s Presidential nomination.
New Hampshire voters went to the polls on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, to cast their ballots for the DNC and GOP representatives they back in the upcoming November Presidential election. But even those out of state could also cast their “ballots” in the NH primary by “voting” for the winner at a political betting site. Missed the boat? Don’t worry: Now that the NH elections are over, you can still bet on all the other upcoming primary elections!

New Hampshire’s 2016 Presidential election was the second-closest in the nation (after Michigan). Hillary Clinton won 47.62% of the popular vote, beating Donald Trump, who won 47.25% of the vote. The margin of victory for the Democratic candidate was only 2736 votes, which is surprising given the state’s blue leanings. Expect NH to be a major tossup in the 2020 general election, especially if the specter of Trump impeachment continues to polarize the electorate.
Several other candidates were on the ballot in NH, including many former Democratic hopefuls who dropped out long before the primary. After the NH primary, candidates Andrew Yang, Michael Bennet, and Deval Patrick ended their political campaigns.
There is a strong correlation between how a candidate is situated on the Democratic odds boards and how that candidate is performing in the New Hampshire Democratic primary polls. For most of the vote-preceding NH polls, Bernie Sanders was leading, while Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Elizabeth Warren were trailing. That’s why Bernie was the favorite to win at every major offer betting site, and it’s why he ultimately did (though Biden lost second place to Buttigieg and finished out of the delegate running, as did Warren).
Trump, as expected, won the New Hampshire GOP primary with ease. However, one thing that is giving Democrats reason for concern is the voter turnout for The Donald. He accumulated 129,696 votes, which is the highest turnout for an incumbent President in over 40 years. Here is how past incumbents fared in the popular party vote in NH:
You couldn’t find too many GOP betting odds online for the 2020 NH primary, as the winner – incumbent President Donald Trump – was practically a foregone conclusion. He has record support within the Republican party, and ha was polling extremely well among the NH conservative base. Bill Weld, it would seem, is something less than a credible challenger, and Joe Walsh is an even smaller threat, especially since he’s now dropped out of the race entirely. In New Hampshire, Trump was polling at 79% among GOP voters, with Weld and Walsh pulling four percent each.
While the 2020 NH Presidential primary odds are finally posted at every offshore political betting site, you can also bet on the nationwide primary winner at any of these outlets, along with a host of other political props on both sides of the aisle. Even though NH recently legalized sports betting, you still have to use an overseas sportsbook, as no state currently allows for domestic election wagering.
