In 2016, Donald Trump effectively ran unopposed in New Mexico, as all the other GOP candidates had withdrawn from the race before the June election. That could happen again, as there appear to be no credible Trump challengers on the GOP betting odds boards (or in the public polls, for that matter).
New Mexico is a very blue state that has voted Democrat in five of the last seven Presidential elections. That said, you can expect there to be a big fight for which DNC hopeful will actually earn the party nod. While data has not yet been given for the New Mexico Democratic primary odds, this page will be updated as soon as such lines are published. In the meantime, the general DNC odds show that Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders are the current front-runners to win the party ticket.
If you want to bet on the NM Presidential primaries specifically, you can’t do so just yet. As the primaries are held in June, there’s simply too much time between now and then for legal election betting sites to offer lines. However, they do have lines on the nationwide primary results, Presidential election futures, and the ever-popular impeachment odds for Donald Trump.
Date: Tuesday, November 3, 2020
New Mexico enjoys a Democratic trifecta, where the Democratic party controls both houses of the state legislature and the governor’s office. However, in 2016, Trump performed better than expected in the blue state, pulling 40.04% of the vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 48.26%.
Many analysts suggest that the GOP could have flipped the state red without Libertarian Gary Johnson affecting the outcome by siphoning off a massive 9.34% of the vote from otherwise likely Republican voters. Whether NM is a potential swing state in 2020 remains to be seen.
