2020 will be a year of great importance for all Americans. The 59th presidential elections in the United States will be held on November 3, and the citizens of the US will have an opportunity to vote for their chosen candidates. However, many people are also interested in not only voting for the people they believe in but also betting on them. In this case, it might be a good idea to listen to the rumors and predictions about the election and make your decision with minimum risk involved.
The 2016 elections
Why is it so difficult to determine the outcome of an election? Well, one of the big reasons why people aren’t sure who to bet on this year is because of the 2016 elections. As you remember, Donald Trump became the 45th president after winning the 2016 elections against all odds. Bookmakers all over the world happily accepted tons of bets on Trump, thinking that this will earn them millions, as nobody believed Trump would win. However, as the elections took an unusual turn, bookmaking companies ended up losing a significant amount of money. After such an unsuccessful election, they decided to change their method this time around.
What are Trump’s odds now?
This year, bookies are standing by Trump and the majority of them believe that he has the best chances of winning the 2020 elections. This might be because they fear the results from the previous election happening again, or they might be listening to the people this time around. Whatever the reason, Paddy Power, a bookmaking company, states that Trump is very likely to be reelected. No other candidate has such high odds of winning this year, so the elections shouldn’t have any surprises.
What about Trump’s opponents?
Trump seems to be the most popular candidate right now, but that doesn’t mean that he is alone in this race. For a while after Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 election, Democratic Party seemed to be without a clear direction or a leader. Now all eyes are on the democratic candidates and at the moment, there are four who could make this election difficult for Trump – Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren. Out of the four, the former vice president Joe Biden has the highest chances of beating Trump.
If you are planning to bet on the upcoming elections, the smartest choice would be listening to bookmakers’ predictions, which are at the moment in favor of Donald Trump. However, you should take into consideration that bookmakers are not always right and that the situation can take an unexpected turn very quickly. Therefore, carefully explore all of the options and question any predictions or rumors you hear before making the final decision.
