Like several northeastern states, Rhode Island is a true blue state with left leanings and a liberal position on most matters. They have gone blue in the last seven Presidential elections, and have a moderate to liberal disposition, making it a less than ideal environment for conservative candidates. The state’s presidential primary for both parties will take place on Tuesday, April 28th along with several other northeastern states during Super Tuesday.
The state has been having their own political uproars with several local democrat politicians defecting to the GOP side, while some existing Republican candidates have gone with a third party option. Riffs within the Rhode Island Republican Party can muddy the waters during a primary. With some of the Dems jumping ship to the GOP side, it is clear that both parties are losing their connections in the state.
There are 19 Republican delegates at stake in Rhode Island. Thirteen of these delegates are awarded proportionally statewide. The remaining six delegates are awarded via Congressional District proportionally. A 10% minimum threshold must be met to receive any delegates. This may not sound like a significant amount of Delegates, but at this point in the game every single vote counts.
While there has not been any recent polling done for Rhode Island Republican voters, the states moderate to liberal standing makes it likely the Trump will prevail here as well as him being the current incumbent. As April 28th draws closer we will likely have access to more current polling information that will give us an idea of how voters are leaning.

As of this writing, the Rhode Island Democratic primary could be won by either candidate.
