Watt's happening in US Politics at the moment?

Another week, another Trump talking point. This time, the POTUS is facing criticism for appearing to laugh when – during a rally in Florida – a member of the audience suggested that the best way to deal with migrants is to ‘shoot them’.

 

However, despite this latest development sending social media into a frenzy, Trump’s chances of a second term in the White House have not been dented – on the contrary, in fact; he has shortened with some bookmakers since the story broke earlier today.

Trump’s best price for re-election is now as low as +125, whilst he is an absolute shoe-in to represent his party at -750. The Donald’s Republican dominance is exemplified by the fact that, following him, the next nine likeliest presidents – according to the books – are Democrats.

 

The race for the Democrat ticket is a lot more interesting. Biden shot to the front of the pack after officially announcing his campaign a fortnight ago, but this race is far from run.

‘Sleepy Joe’ is most-fancied at +450 and will be hoping that the #MeToo allegations are behind him – but not right behind him – as Bernie Sanders remains hot on his heels at +500. Kamala Harris has stayed with the leaders and is just behind at +600, while Pete Buttigieg will be keen not to lose further ground having drifted from +600 to +900 in the last two weeks.
