Forget the polls and follow the money. The betting money.
Because Vegas odds say Trump will win.
Some may say it’s a bit early to be placing bets. But that’s how much of a sure thing Trump 2020 really is.
Of course, Democrats will do their best to show up for the smackdown. So far, Michael Bloomberg’s big spending bought him some notoriety. And not a minute too late, as the official start of the primary season is upon us. In fact, Bloomberg notched himself up to 3rd place in the betting odds.
As the Washington Examiner explains:
The media mogul and former New York City mayor’s odds to win the nomination are 11/2, behind Sen. Bernie Sanders, at 2/1, and Joe Biden, at 9/4. He is tied with Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“Bloomberg continues to surge in the betting markets even though he’s yet to appear in a Democratic debate,” says US-Bookies betting industry analyst Alex Donohue. “However, he will have an audience after the debate, as he’s booked for an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Obviously, Bloomberg wants to be taken seriously. Even if he only has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. But I say let him waste his dollars. Nothing like the entertainment of a futile effort from the left.
Place Your Bets
I’m not much of a gambler myself. But considering these odds, I might just need to call up a few bookies and put my money on the line.
The Examiner continues:
When it comes to the final vote, President Trump still leads, at 4/5, followed by Biden and Sanders at 5/1. Bloomberg’s odds to win it all shortened from 18/1 to 12/1 in the latest line.
Odds to win the 2020 presidential election:
Donald Trump: 4/5
Joe Biden: 5/1
Bernie Sanders: 5/1
Michael Bloomberg: 12/1
Elizabeth Warren: 16/1
Pete Buttigieg: 22/1
Andrew Yang: 25/1
Amy Klobuchar: 69/1
Tom Steyer: 150/1
Tulsi Gabbard: 150/1
Odds to win the Democratic nomination:
Bernie Sanders: 2/1
Joe Biden: 9/4
Michael Bloomberg: 11/2
Elizabeth Warren: 11/2
Pete Buttigieg: 9/1
Andrew Yang: 16/1
Amy Klobuchar: 33/1
Tom Steyer: 150/1
Tulsi Gabbard: 200/1
That’s about as close to a sure thing as any Vegas bookie can muster.
The Polls Agree
From the moment the impeachment farce blew up, Trump’s been crushing the polls. And Democrats can’t see the forest for the trees.
Obviously, leftists can’t even settle on a real front-runner. They simply try one candidate for a week or two, then try to throw their weight behind someone else.
Then, they rely on polls that sample less than 80 voters. As if that’s representative of the real America.
However, anyone who tuned in to the LSU Championship game knows exactly how Americans feel about Donald Trump.
You can bet the same people chanting “USA, USA, USA” will show up November 3rd to cast their ballots. Heck, I’d bet the farm on Trump’s victory, if only I had one.
