Connecticut moved its primary from April 28 to June 2, then to August 11 because of the coronavirus outbreak. In the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton won Connecticut with 54.57% of the vote, compared with Donald Trump’s 40.93%. Connecticut is a Democratic stronghold in presidential politics. The Democratic nominee has carried the state by double-digit margins in each of the last seven elections. The last Republican nominee to carry Connecticut was George H. W. Bush in 1988. The most Democratic areas of Connecticut include the cities of Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport. The Republican-leaning areas are the eastern and western ends of the state, including some affluent New York suburbs. Connecticut Republicans, however, tend to be very moderate by national GOP standards. Democrats control the state Legislature, the governor’s office and the congressional delegation.
