2020 US Election Betting Odds PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on January 16, 2017 22:17 GMT
With one of the most off the wall elections in the history of, well, anywhere unfolding last year in the United States we are already at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. While those words would have sounded absolutely implausible in that sequence just a few years ago, the fact remains that he was able to pull off one of the most spectacular political upsets of all time and was also able to deliver the senate and the house to a Republican party that appeared to have largely turned its back on him by the end of the campaign season with the full assumption floating around that he was going to lose badly.
Instead of a pummelling loss at the hands of Hillary Clinton – which many had expected and seen as a foregone conclusion – Trump was able to break the blue wall and effectively run the table where he needed to.
This has long been a hallmark of the career of Donald Trump, making his opponents feel as though they are winning until all of a sudden the tables turn irrevocably. His ability to define his enemies and deflect attacks from a mainstream media that openly hates him makes him an even bigger force to be reckoned with and we will certainly be sitting tight over the next weeks and months to see the first portion of his reign as president and how it all shapes up.
It's worth noting, however, that there are plenty of interesting wagers already out there for the next election cycle that will begin again in less than four years. With the mid-term elections in 2018 looking to already be slanted in favour of the Republicans, it's going to be very interesting to see how it all develops.
Donald Trump remains the beting favourite to win the 2020 US Presidential election and it's by a considerable margin. However, it's worth noting that he is not trading at an odds-on price to do so. You'll find him trading as low as even money with a few bookmakers while he traes as high as a 12/5 margin with others.
