2020 New Jersey Primary Results And General Election Odds

2020 New Jersey General Election Betting Odds & Primary Results

New Jersey’s general election and Presidential election will occur on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. In addition to these, NJ is looking to fill one open US Senate seat and eight US House of Representatives seats. (New Jersey’s state government elections are all slated for Tuesday, November 5, 2019, and will not be a part of the 2020 general.)

However, before the general election, New Jersey held its Democratic and Republican Presidential primaries on July 7, 2020, rescheduled from June 2 because of coronavirus lockdowns. As expected, Biden won the DNC primary easily.

That said, if you still want to vote on NJ’s general election odds, you can. However, due to NJ state policies, reputable offshore betting sites are not accepting wagers from players within Garden State borders. If you want to wager on politics online, you will have to do so from outside state lines.

How Did NJ Vote In The 2016 Presidential Election?

Given that New Jersey holds a significant Democratic majority across the board, it’s no surprise that the state went to Hillary Clinton by a landslide in 2016, where she earned 55.45% of the vote compared to Donald Trump’s 41.35%. However, it’s not out of the question that the GOP can flip NJ for 2020, though it’s also not all that likely. Still, the state’s 14 electoral college votes mean that both parties will campaign heavily in NJ.

What is New Jersey’s Political Landscape?

  • State House (aka General Assembly): Democratic majority (54-26)
  • State Senate: Democratic majority (26-13, 1 vacancy)
  • Gubernatorial: Democratic

Results For 2020 New Jersey Democratic Primary

By the time the rescheduled NJ primaries were held, only Joe Biden was still officially running for the party ticket and was already the presumptive nominee. As a result, per the Democratic betting odds boards, Uncle Joe won without any trouble.

  • Joe Biden – 86.1%, 121 delegates
  • Bernie Sanders – 13.5%, 3 delegates

Results For 2020 New Jersey Republican Primary

On the Presidential campaign trail in 2016, Donald Trump found support in New Jersey from Republicans, winning the GOP primary there with a massive 80.41% of the vote. In 2020, the Republican betting odds showed that a similar outcome was likely.

However, due to the coronavirus, the state didn’t have a GOP primary at all, awarding Trump all 49 delegates. With poor polling and worse Trump re-election odds, the move has at least saved the NJ GOP a significant amount of money to use for other races.

Betting on the 2020 New Jersey Presidential Election

Please note that you can only bet on politics at offshore betting sites if you are physically located outside of New Jersey borders when you place your wagers.
