Who Will Win The U.S. Presidential Election in 2020?
While some scoff at the notion President Trump will get punted from office - 888Sport bookmakers posted impeachment (1.67) as the favourite over resignation (3.5) or a Senate conviction (7.0) during his first term.
But here we are approaching the 2020 election and Trump is the favourite. The current Democratic frontrunner is ex-Vice President Joe Biden, who looks to move Trump from the White House.
Few Republicans have lined up to oppose Trump but there is a diverse group that might challenge him. Most current GOP members don't want to rock the boat but there are plenty of critics within the party. That includes disenchanted retiring Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker though neither made it to our odds table.
Trump isn't a popular figure on a global political scale, but he has a loyal following that seems to have unshaken loyalty to the President - no matter what he does.
Vice President Mike Pence (51.00) is the current Republican favourite behind Trump who is posted with a (1.91) best price at Bodog. Joe Biden is a recognizable face and has been around the political merry-go-round in the US that he could command huge support. But will it be enough to topple Trump?
It seems unlikely. While Joe Biden clearly offers a different option for voters, he doesn't seem to have the same highlight-reel moments Trump always brings; which seem to appeal to the American people.
Other notables include Hillary Clinton, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo though he is running for re-election. One for the future, how do think Michelle Obama or Joe Biden plus VP Barack Obama ticket would fair? Barack can't run for President but there is no law against him being a VP candidate. Though one has to wonder if he would put his family through four to eight more years of living in captivity.
U.S. Election Betting Is A Long Wagering Season
People can say what they want about the state of Canadian politics – we’ll take it over the mess in the United States any day and twice on Sundays. From Local to State and Federal elections, with many mid-term votes mixed in along the way, the US electoral process never rests. With things not far away now, the U.S. political betting lines are heating up.
For those not familiar with the US Presidential election process, here is an abridged version of how things are supposed to play out. Candidates “officially” announce they are running 18 months in advance of the election.
Caucus and Primary debates roll out during the summer before an election year and run until spring. State-by-State Primary and Caucus voting run from January to September during each election year. All the fields, Republican, Democrat, and Independent, are whittled down during Presidential debates in September and October - prior to the voting day in early November.
We started tracking the 2016 US election betting odds once the field was at nine “contenders” though everyone knew there were really just two. That war, which featured countless battles, was between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald John Trump.
President Trump proved a dark horse can emerge from the pack as he was a (26.00) money line longshot at Bodog when there were still 27 contenders in the fight. While we suggest waiting until the field is cut down some if you see a current underdog emerging - bet on them anytime 24/7 at these top-ranked online sportsbooks.
