Alabama’s primaries will take place on Super Tuesday. In the 2016 general election, Donald Trump won the state with 62.08% of the vote, compared with Hillary Clinton’s 34.36%. Once part of the solid Democratic South, Alabama has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1976, when Jimmy Carter beat Gerald Ford by 13 points. Trump, Mitt Romney, John McCain and George W. Bush all carried the state with more than 60% of the vote from 2004 to 2016. Democrat Doug Jones shook the political world in 2017 when he defeated Republican Roy Moore in a special election to become Alabama’s first Democratic senator in two decades. Jones, who holds the seat once occupied by Jeff Sessions, is up for reelection in 2020.
