Is Hunterdon County Trump Country? Elizabeth Perez

Hunterdon County displays several signs of support for Trump, including yard displays and flags. However, the outcome of the previous presidential general elections presents a different story. On March 1, 2024, NJ.gov shared the latest voter registration numbers, which revealed that there were 30,200 registered Democrats and 42,575 registered Republicans in Hunterdon County.

In the 2016 Presidential General Election, Hillary Clinton received 28,898 votes, while Donald Trump received 38,712 votes. Trump won Hunterdon County by 9,814 votes, which was a substantial victory compared to 2020.

In the 2020 Presidential General Election, Joe Biden received 39,457 votes, and Donald Trump received 43,153 votes. Trump won the Hunterdon County vote by only 3,696 votes. This difference may be due to a few towns in the county that have a strong preference for either party.


Alexandria Township, Franklin Township, Holland Township, Kingwood Township, Lebanon Township, and Readington Township had the biggest win margins for Republicans, while Frenchtown Boro and Lambertville City won big for the Democrats.

Will Hunterdon County vote for Trump in the next Presidential election? The answer lies in the question that both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump asked - "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?"
