Oregon will have two major elections in 2020: The Presidential primary on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, and the general election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. While the Presidential primary will decide which Democratic and Republican candidates will face off for the nation’s highest office in November, the general election will also feature races for numerous state posts, five US House seats, and one Senate seat.
Sportsbooks may or may not offer OR-specific odds on the party primaries, just because the candidates might be a foregone conclusion by the time May 19 rolls around. However, you will be able to wager on all the major national races through online political betting, including who you think will be America’s next President.

In 2016, by the time the OR primary rolled around, Donald Trump’s odds were through the roof, and he was the clear candidate of choice for the Republican party. As a result, he was able to win over 66% of the vote in the OR GOP primary. For 2020, the Republican betting lines indicate that you can probably expect more of the same, barring some major upheaval like a Trump resignation.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders easily won the Oregon primary in 2016, but Sanders recently underwent heart surgery and is not leading his 2020 DNC rivals when it comes to the national polls or the Democrat betting odds. Right now, Elizabeth Warren looks like the Dem to beat, though we won’t know which way the dam breaks until later in the election cycle. However, her far-left policies will likely resonate with the more progressive OR voters.
If you’re interested in how to bet on politics in Oregon, it’s simple: Just visit one of the political betting sites recommended here, and place your election wagers. Remember, even though sports betting is legal in OR, you still can’t bet on elections in the state. However, offshore betting services are safe to use, and they’ve got an ever-growing number of election odds to choose from for the 2020 primaries and general election.

Oregon was won fairly easily by Hillary Clinton in 2016, as the Democratic candidate earned 50.07% of the vote compared to Donald Trump’s 39.09%. Interestingly, Trump was the first Republican to carry Columbia County since Herbert Hoover (1928), albeit it is unlikely that the incumbent can parlay that into statewide success in 2020. Especially if his impeachment odds keep going up!
