Donald Trump’s odds of being re-elected President of the United States have improved despite Bernie Sanders’ recent withdrawal as a candidate to become the Democratic nominee.
Former Vice-President Joe Biden now remains the overwhelming favorite to be approved as the Democratic selection, having even received an endorsement from Sanders in a bid to achieve unity among the party, per the New York Times.
Oddschecker reported Trump is now available at a best price of 10/11 (1.91), which is an improvement after he could be found priced at evens earlier in April.
The hopes among Democrats would have been that the prospect of a Trump re-election looked less likely as their party comes closer to picking a recognised nominee. However, bookmakers appear to believe a second term could be more probable in the wake of Sanders’ exit.
West Virginia recently became the first state permitted to begin accepting legal wagers on the U.S. election, which has long been prohibited in the country.
