Donald Trump wins 2020 US Presidential Elections, betting odds suggest
But, the statistics and sportsbooks averages are still leaning toward a repeat win by incumbent President Donald Trump. Currently the leader is averaging a +137 favorite to win the 2020 election and serve his second term in the White House.
Trump made headlines during his speech in Louisiana about energy infrastructure. As reported by Daily Mail, the president mocked four of his potential Democratic nomination challengers to the office including Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.
As quoted at the event, “Boy, you got some beauties there!…Three hundred and fifty million people and that’s the best we can do?’ Continuing he went on, “It’s going to be one of these people…So far 23 different Democratic White House hopefuls have declared their candidacies.”
During his current term in office Trump himself has seen his odds peak and fall frequently. Currently he is close to the narrowest range when in September 2018 his longest odds were +125.
Bernie Sanders is a favorite to get the Democratic nomination
Bernie Sanders is being viewed as a favorite to get the Democratic nomination with +650. Newcomer to the race Pete Buttigieg is gaining popularity with a hometown appeal campaign and his price has grown. He is now +1200 to win the election – making him third favorite Democrat and fourth in the ladder overall.
Beto O’Rouke has slipped into sixth place at +1400. The newsbreaking recent #MeToo controversy surrounding Joe Biden’s has made him slip to fifth.
Currently there are 18 elected officials and public figures entered in the race to The Whitehouse. Betting peaks are expected to grow as the race grows closer. The Democratic National Convention is slated to take place in Milwaukie, Wisconsin from July 13 to July 16, 2020, almost two weeks earlier than the 2016 convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
