Given VT’s overwhelmingly blue tilt, the 2016 Presidential election wasn’t particularly close in the state. Hillary Clinton won handily, taking 55.72% of the vote, while Donald Trump scored only 29.26%. Bernie Sanders, who wasn’t even on the ballot, leeched off 5.68% of the vote through write-ins, which is impressive even despite VT being the Senator’s home state. VT is considered a Democratic lock for 2020.
In 2016, as expected, Bernie Sanders swept Vermont for the DNC primary win with 86.1% of the vote, while Clinton walked away with only 13.6% of the vote. However, the pre-Super Tuesday Bernie betting odds showed that the VT Senator had lost some momentum nationally since the last cycle. However, in his home state of Vermont, Sanders’s DNC odds suggested that he would win easily, which he did.
Despite Vermont being a foregone conclusion for the Democrats in 2020, the Republican primary in the state still promises a large turnout. In 2016, Donald Trump actually won the GOP primary with 32.34% of the vote, beating out the establishment’s John Kasich.
This time around, as the incumbent, Trump lived up to his Republican betting odds and won the state handily with 88.7% of the vote.
If you’re going to bet on the 2020 VT Presidential election, you’re going to have to wait a bit for election betting sites to post state-specific odds. However, in the meantime, you can wager on a host of other political action, including Trump resignation odds, DNC debate odds, gubernatorial election odds, and more.
