US Election Odds: Meghan Markle's 2024 Election Odds Cut
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the global news again this week after posting a video encouraging everyone to get out and vote ahead of the 2020 US election. The social media voted prompted a typical Donald Trump response. The President commented "I'm not a fan of hers" when asked about Meghan Markle at a press conference on Wednesday.
The pressure is beginning to mount on Donald Trump ahead of the 2020 US election, the current President was the bookmakers long-time favorite to win in November. However, Joe Biden now tops the odds market, with his US election odds implying he has a 54.5% chance of winning. Donald Trump's US election odds imply he's got a 47.6% chance of being victorious.
However, it's a different market which has grabbed our attention in the last couple of days. We reported back in April that Meghan Markle was +10000 (100/1) to win the 2024 US election, however, those odds have been cut.
One online UK bookmaker now has Meghan Markle at +5000 (50/1) to win the 2024 US election, which implies she now has a 2% chance of becoming the President. We must admit, this seems a very unlikely move for Markle, and we doubt there's much chance she'll decide to step into politics. However, as 2020 has shown, strange things can happen.
There are plenty of names you'd expect to see sitting in the 2024 US election odds market, but there are plenty which catch the eye. One which we've now come accustom to seeing but also grabs your attention is Kanye West, the music mogul is currently +5000 (50/1) to win the 2020 US election.
Michelle Obama was rumoured to be a potential running mate for Joe Biden a few months back, and the whispers of Obama running for election in 2024 are bound to gather momentum in the next few years. She's currently priced at +3300 (33/1) to win the 2024 US election.
Dwayne Johnson is the 5th favorite to win the 2024 US election, and currently has the same odds as Donald Trump! Johnson's US election odds imply he's got a 4.8% chance of becoming POTUS.
Mike Pence is the bookmakers favorite to win the 2024 US election, his odds are at +500 (5/1), which implies he's got a 16.7% chance of winning.
