Wisconsin’s 2020 general election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, and will include races for the US Presidency, eight US House seats, and a number of state-level political positions. The WI Presidential primary was held on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The results took several days to come in due to the coronavirus outbreak and counting delays, but since Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race on Wednesday, it seemed likely that Joe Biden would win easily, and he did. He is now the presumptive Democratic nominee for the general.

In 2016, Wisconsin’s Presidential election was decided in Donald Trump’s favor by less than a single percentage point over Hillary Clinton (47.22% to 46.45%). With a Democratic governor in office who also narrowly won, WI is a total tossup for both parties in 2020, and it will be a major battleground state.
Some candidates who dropped out of the race before the WI primary got a small fraction of the vote but no delegates, including Elizabeth Warren (1.5%), Michael Bloomberg (1.0%), Amy Klobuchar (0.7%), Tulsi Gabbard (0.6%), and Pete Buttigieg (0.5%). Even Andrew Yang got 0.4% of the vote.
In 2016, Wisconsin was all-in on Bernie Sanders, who won every single county except one and beat Hillary Clinton 56.59% to 43.05%. This time around, the state was far less likely to favor a counter-establishment candidate on the Democratic side, per Democrat betting odds as the election neared.
One the eve of the WI DNC primary, these were the odds given to the two candidates running:
In 2016, Donald Trump did not win the WI Republican primary (losing to Ted Cruz), but his GOP betting odds this time around were much better. As the incumbent, it is unlikely that he will have garnered less than 85% of the vote once the Republican primary figures are tallied.
Wisconsin, legislatively, is soundly Republican. However, at the executive level, the state is Democratic, and that could be the case in the 2020 Presidential election. How WI votes will likely all come down to the DNC candidate that wins the party ticket, which is looking like Joe Biden.
But does Uncle Joe have a chance? You can vote on the likely WI Democratic nominee at any reputable political betting site, but remember to get your picks in ASAP!
