- The Arizona Democratic Primary odds have former Vice President Joe Biden beating Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders once all the votes are in.
- Biden has been favored in more states nationwide than his opponent during the bulk of the campaign.
PHOENIX – The Democratic Primary vote will take place in Arizona on Tuesday with Arizonans choosing former Vice President Joe Biden or Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to represent the Democratic party in the 2020 Presidential Election. But which way are residents of the Grand Canyon State leaning when it comes to the candidates?
According to real money online sportsbooks, Biden has the edge over Sanders to take Arizona once the votes are tallied.
Joe Biden has finally found his footing in his campaign for the Democratic nomination after numerous missteps. He has been able to win over multiple states that have already done their primary voting.
He and Bernie Sanders are the last two Democratic candidates standing, having the two go head to head to win over states nationwide.
Biden walks into the Arizona vote as a very heavy favorite to win with odds of (-5000). Sanders’ odds are less than favorable (+1200).
A poll by the Pew Research Center has shown that 23.6% of voters in the state of Arizona are Latino. Both candidates have done well with Hispanics, but each has had their fair share of problems with likeability when it comes to certain groups of Hispanics.
While 23.6% may make up less than a quarter of the vote, it could be enough to swing the state into one direction or another. Depending on where the Latino voters are from may sway their choice of candidate. Sanders is not popular with the Cuban-Americans after an interview he did with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes.
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” said Sanders.
He went on to add that the reason Cubans never rose up with the U.S. to get rid of Castro was that “he educated their kids, gave them health care, totally transformed the society, you know?”
Due to these comments, Biden is more popular among Cuban-Americans whereas Sanders is more popular with Mexican-Americans. The Mexican-Americans in Arizona like Alexis Delgado believes that Sanders’ plan for the U.S. is more in line with his family’s values.
Delgado said he will be voting for Sanders on Tuesday because he “shares the values of my family, my community and my neighborhood.”
The Arizona Democratic Primary polls close at 10 p.m. EST. The two candidates stand to gain 67 delegates if they win over the Grand Canyon State.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading the way with the best odds for victory and making his way to the 2020 Presidential Election to face President Donald Trump.
