Bernie Sanders odds did not change following his announcement for 2020. The Democrat who emerges to challenge Trump will have a tough fight on their hands.
Although there are now twelve (twelve!) already-declared candidates opposing Donald Trump in 2020, the nation’s gambling gurus are still heavily favoring him for the win in the next election. In fact, as the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday, the entry of Bernie Sandersas #12 in the race didn’t even budge the numbers.
In the latest batch of odds, released just after Bernie’s announcement, Trump is the overwhelming 3-2 favorite for reelection, writes the Examiner’s Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard, who spoke with the sportsbook manager at BetOnline.ag, Dave Mason.
However, it should be noted that the generic Democrat vs. Republican slightly favors the Democrat. So a bigger payout on Republican if you’re betting. Still, after two years of rough polling for Trump, it’s a remarkably resilient showing.
For the record, Kamala Harris is showing 8 to 1 at the moment, while Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson is at 80-to-1…For now.
