US 2020 Democratic Candidate Betting Guide
The battle to secure the Democratic nomination is beginning to heat up with a number of names starting to move clear of the pack, all with the dream of ousting Donald Trump from the White House.
At the top of the market is Bernie Sanders. Sanders is a best price of +350 to go one step further than he did in 2016 and with one book at short at +275.
The man they call 'Bernie' has also seen a huge shortening in price, with the market taking Sanders from +1250 to +400 in the past three months.
He's moved ahead of former-VP Joe Biden, who had surged from +900 at new year to the +250 market leader, has now slumped to fourth favorite, at +650, after the recent #MeToo allegations.
Kamala Harris was seen by the market as Trump's biggest competitor early last year but she's slipped behind Sanders in the running. The 54-year old isn't far behind however and available at +450.
Beto O'Rourke sits fifth in the running but has undergone an rollercoaster ride so far. He saw in 2019 as joint favorite at +450 before sliding to +800 by the beginning of February, where he reamins today.
Pete Buttigieg, the Mayor of South Bend, is the hottest name in town. He is rocketing toward the top of the market, and is now third favorite at +650. As recently as the start of February he wasn't available on the markets, he was as long as +1100 at the start of April but now the former Harvard graduate is third favorite to get the nomination and would become not only the youngest, but also the first openly gay president, if he were to win.
Michelle Obama, once as short at +1400 to be the Democratic candidate, at the beginning on 2018, is now +8000. Could the former-first lady making a rousing comeback?
