Europeans Are Betting that Hillary Clinton will be 2020 Democratic Nominee
European markets are putting the odds of Hillary Clinton becoming the next US President at 100-1, and 25-1 to be the nominee.
But that’s not stopping Europeans from betting on her becoming the Democratic nominee in 2020. Twenty-two percent of total online bets in European markets for the 2020 Democratic candidate race has been placed on Hillary Clinton.
In terms of total money wagered, Clinton only trails Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee (25%). Not surprisingly, the most bets are being placed on President Trump’s reelection (36%). In spite of the heavy activity on Clinton, the odds for her securing the Presidency are remote. Trump, by contrast, is the favorite, at +150 odds, followed by Kamala Harris (+800) and Elizabeth Warren (+1200).
Other potential candidates with the same odds as Clinton are Ivanka Trump, rapper Kanye West, actor George Clooney, NBA coach Gregg Popovich, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Other notable potential candidates include Oprah Winfrey (+5000) and Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson (+6600).
Interest in the 2020 presidential race is magnified by the looming midterm elections, which, so far, have attracted £600,000 worth of bets, 12 times the amount placed four years ago. The race to control the House is the most popular market, generating around £450,000 worth of bets, with roughly 66% of those bets placed on the Republicans and the remainder on the Democrats.
“We’re seeing intense interest in political wagers heading into the 2018 midterm elections; far more than what we’ve seen in past election cycles,” said Alex Kostin, contributor to US-Bookies.
“With potential opponents to President Trump set to emerge in 2019, this high level of activity around political wagers is likely to persist for the foreseeable future.”
