According to bookies Trump now has a 64% chance of winning
Next US President
Donald Trump’s chances of being re-elected in 2020 have hit an all-time high, with bookies slashing odds on the current US President serving another term.
Trump is expected to win the Republican nomination again. With a self-proclaimed Republican Party approval rating of 94%, that’s a hefty lead against the other contenders of Mike Pence at 33/1, Nikki Haley at 50/1 and John Kasich at 80/1.
Odds on Trump to win the next election can be found as short as 4/7. This gives the President an implied probability of 64% to win.
In the last 24 hours the current President has collected a large portion of the bets (43%), with Sanders (23%) the only man behind him.
Punters are backing Bernie Sanders to win the nomination, however, currently at the best price of 6/4. Sanders has attracted the majority (35%) of bets in the Democratic Candidate market in the last 24 hours. Sanders missed out on the nomination in the 2016 election to Hilary Clinton.
Now running with the slogan “Not me. Us.” Sanders and his supporters will be hoping not only can he win the nomination, but prevent Trump’s second consecutive term as President.
Former Mayor of New York and businessman Michael Bloomberg is hot on Sanders’ tail, however. Despite not running in the New Hampshire primaries, the American businessman has sunk millions into his campaign already and bookies have placed him second in the market. Currently available at 11/4, 22% of punters have backed him to win the nomination in the last 24 hours.
Former Mayor of South Bend Indiana, Pete Buttigieg was also once a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Seen as an unlikely candidate from the start, Buttigieg has shortened in price from 25/1 to as short as 9/2 in just the last fortnight.
He’s attracted interest from punters, however, drawing in 11% of bets in the last 24 hours. Now available at the best price of 6/1, value hunting punters may be on to something here. Ranking second in the New Hampshire primary - he’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
After her success in the New Hampshire primaries, Amy Klobuchar has gained the attention of punters. Available at 66/1 on Monday she can now be found as short as 12/1.
The Senator from Minnesota is now the leading woman in the Democratic campaign has gained more than double the votes of Elizabeth Warren in New Hampshire. In the last 24 hours, she’s attracted 10% of punters and is now available at the best price of 16/1
Joe Biden ranked fifth in New Hampshire. A previous front runner for the nomination, the former two-term Vice President to Barrack Obama remained confident in his speech reminding supporters that there are still 48 states left to vote.
Only 6% of punters have backed him in the last 24 hours despite being the second most popular bet since the market opened. Now at 11/1, Biden will have to impress elsewhere in the nation to win the nomination.
Andrew Yang dropped out of the race last night citing that he is “The Math guy and it is clear by the numbers” that he will not win the race and is, therefore, suspending his campaign, being unwilling to “accept donations and support” in a race he cannot win.
