BOISE, Idaho — Editor's note: The above video discusses Idaho's preparation for it's first Democratic presidential primary election.
(AP) — Idaho's upcoming presidential primary could give an indication of the political leanings of all of its newcomers.
The deeply conservative state last year was the nation's fastest-growing. Close to 37,000 new residents boosted Idaho's population to about 1.8 million.
Democrats will use a primary for the first time on Tuesday after picking Sen. Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton at a caucus in 2016. President Donald Trump is expected to have little difficulty winning the Republican primary, or the state in the November general election.
Still, officials say switching to a primary this year could significantly increase the number of Democratic participants, and play a role in the outcome.
