Joe Biden may have sputtered in a slow start in the early Democrat primaries, but the former U.S. vice-president’s political machine is now firing on all cylinders.
The 81-year-old Biden, who was second-in-command under President Barack Obama, is not only the overwhelming favorite (-1600) to win the Democratic Presidential Nomination, but he is now also favored (+108) to defeat Donald Trump (+113) and retain his position in the 2024 Presidential Election in November (U.S. politics odds provided by Bovada).
As the vote for an event draws closer, these sites will post prop bets ranging from the margin of victory, the number of seats won, the exact finish of a certain candidate, and so on.
For those looking to bet on more than just U.S. politics, many online sites offer odds on other general elections — like Britain and France. The Conservatives (-167) are solid favorites to win the most seats in the next U.K. General Election, while Emmanuel Macron (-133) is the top pick to be re-elected in the 2022 French Presidential Election.
The Race for the White House
The stock market is in meltdown mode, citizens are stuck in their homes, and polls suggest disappointment with their president in his handling of the threatening virus. No matter what the Democrats say or do, this is Trump’s greatest challenge to a second term as commander-in-chief.
The nation goes to the polls in November, which might leave enough time for the 77-year-old Trump (+113) and remove the sitting government and another attempt to rescue a country that has lost a lot of its creditability on the global stage over the last decade.
In the meantime, Trump (+113) has been sweeping the early polls and closing in on the leader Biden (+108).
But history is on the president’s side. Three out of the last five presidents were elected to office for two terms. The last one-term president was George H.W. Bush in 1988. A loss by Biden would break the current two-term streak of the last two Democrat presidents — Bill Clinton, and Obama.
VGB’s pick — Biden (+108). The economic engine of the country was humming along. Unemployment was at record lows. But Biden’s reign has improved the nation’s health and casts doubt over a second term for Donald Trump. Even with Biden’s verbal gaffes, he may just ride his popularity and momentum right into the White House for a second term.
