In the 2016 Presidential election in Texas, Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton as expected, 52.23% to 43.24%. Texas has one of the weakest Republican political trifectas in the country, and the state has been on the precipice of turning blue for a few years now. In 2020, Texas should still be reliably red, but a good Democratic candidate can definitely continue to hammer away at the state’s historical GOP standing.
The Democrats do not expect to swing Texas in the 2020 Presidential election, but the blue wave has been chipping away at red dominance in the state for years, and this election could offer more of the same erosion.
Until recently, the thinking was that the DNC candidate to win in TX would have to be a mainstream politician like Joe Biden. While Bernie looked to be favored in TX before the primary per the Democratic election odds, Biden won the state by nearly five points.
In 2016, Ted Cruz was the big winner in the Texas Republican primary, earning 43.8% of the vote, while Donald Trump came in second with 26.7% of the vote. However, in 2020, Cruz wasn’t on the ballot and incumbent Trump had a big lead among his “challengers” on the GOP odds boards. Trump won Texas with a yuge 94.1% of the vote.
Betting on the 2020 Texas Presidential general will be possible once the best election betting sites post state-specific odds near the November election. Because TX is worth so much electorally, you can expect the state to have a tremendous amount of betting interest.
