Donald Trump carried UT in the 2016 Presidential election, winning all but two counties. Interestingly, however, Trump only won 45.54% of the vote, while Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton took 27.46% of the vote.
These numbers were low because Utah’s Evan McMullin siphoned off a staggering 21.54% of the vote for his Independent campaign, which is one of the best single-state third-party showings ever in a Presidential election. Still, even if UT fields another strong Independent, it is unlikely to be enough to turn the state blue.
In 2016, Bernie Sanders waltzed all over Hillary Clinton in the Utah Democratic caucus, winning every single county and taking a massive 79.21% of the vote. For 2020, like the GOP, the Democrats moved to a statewide primary system.
This cycle, Bernie’s running again, and he remains popular in the state, which traditionally shies away from mainstream candidates like Joe Biden, which is one of the reasons Sanders was initially atop the national DNC betting boards. While Sanders lost most Super Tuesday states, he won Utah by a large margin over Joe Biden.
In 2016, Utah was still using the caucus system, and Donald Trump fared extremely poorly in the state, winning just 13.82% of the vote compared against Ted Cruz’ 69.46% and John Kasich’s 16.72%.
However, the state has moved to a primary platform for 2020, and Trump was way out in front per the current GOP betting odds. He won the Utah GOP primary easily, amassing 88.2% of the vote.
If you’re going to bet on the Utah Presidential election, you will have to wait a bit to get state-specific odds and lines on the contest. However, you can still wager on a host of election odds at various political betting sites, and the sooner you turn in your futures bets, the better the payouts are guaranteed to be.
