West Virginia Presidential Primary Odds For 2016
West Virginia will hold its presidential primary for both Republicans and Democrats on May 10, 2016. Voters in West Virginia will receive the ballot for the political party in which they’re registered. For example registered Republicans will receive the ballot that includes Republican candidates. Voters who are not registered with one of the primary political parties may request a ballot associated with the party of their choice. West Virginia is classified as offering mixed voting options since they do not require the voter to be registered with a political party in order to vote.
West Virginia is a republican leaning state, but is not a true red or blue state. They stay primarily to the center politically and typically hold moderate to slightly right positions on issues. This makes West Virginia an ideal Territory for moderate candidates such as Donald Trump. Staunch conservative candidate Ted Cruz may find it difficult to gain momentum in this type of political landscape. West Virginia has voted Republican in four of the last seven presidential elections.
2016 West Virginia Republican Primary
As expected Donald Trump is polling well ahead of Ted Cruz in West Virginia. The moderate mindset of Republican voters in the state positions them to embrace the more progressive approach of Donald Trump. However, Don Trump has run into some challenges recently in his campaign and the most current polling is from mid February, which may not reflect the most current mood of the voters. The previous polling figures place Donald Trump approximately 20 points ahead of Ted Cruz, which is a very large gap to close. There are 34 delegates at stake for Republicans in West Virginia. It is a winner takes all state with split allocation. They are split as follows: 22 of the delegates are awarded state wide, nine via Congressional District, and the last three are awarded to the candidate that receives the state’s popular vote. Based on all the information available at the time of this writing, the likely winner of West Virginia’s republican primary will be Donald Trump.
2016 West Virginia Democratic Primary
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are both vying for the 37 available delegates in West Virginia. The delegates are awarded proportionally with a 15% minimum vote threshold required in order to receive any delegates. Some of the delegates are awarded statewide and some via Congressional District. The most recent polling, which took place in mid February, places Sanders 28 points ahead of Clinton. We were somewhat surprised by this based on the fact that WV typically falls close to the center politically, and Sanders is pretty far left, though democrats in the state seem to be embracing his message. At this point in time, Sanders is the clear front runner with a pretty wide margin over Clinton.
Betting on the 2016 West Virginia Presidential Primary
As of this writing, Trump and Sanders are clear frontrunners and both seem to be a pretty sure bet for winning the 2016 primaries for their respective parties. This information is based solely on polling figures as no odds have been released yet for this specific primary event. If West Virginia’s primaries are going to be added to the betting lines at the 2 political betting sportsbooks we endorse, it will likely be done a bit closer to the event when the odds makers have access to information that reflects the pulse of the region. If they aren’t posted, they will definitely have the lines up for betting on who will win the 2016 Presidential general election. Even if West Virginia does not make it into the betting lines, we recommend monitoring the results of this primary and the others as they will all provide gamblers with valuable information for voting on who will win the nomination for each party.
