2020 Primary vote totals.
Trump: 18,032,651
Biden: 17,660,139

Since 1912, only 3 incumbents have received more primary votes than their challenger. Eisenhower 1956, Nixon 1972, & Clinton 1996. All of them won re-election in landslides.
To clarify: only 3 incumbents, who didn't face a legitimate primary challenger, got more primary votes than their challenger. Jimmy Carter in 1980 got more primary vote than Reagan, but he had a contested convention.
Biden's total includes NY and NJ totals, I checked the Green Papers website. Also, the green papers website and wikipedia totals line up. The vote totals are current.
