Odds on Who Will Win the Iowa Caucus

After what feels like an eternity, we are going to see the first ballots cast on the way towards the next Presidential Election when the Iowa Caucus takes place on February 1. Attendees will be heading to local churches and community centers to cast their votes for who they support as their party’s representative that they want to become the next POTUS.

The Democratic caucus was expected to be rather negligible for the longest time with the assumption that Hilary Clinton would run away with nomination from start to finish. However, Bernie Sanders has been making a massive move over the past couple months and is actually ahead of Hilary in many polls. Clinton is still the favorite to win the Democratic Iowa Caucus per Bovada, but she is just -200 with Sanders coming back at +140.

Oh yeah, that guy that nobody ever remembers (Martin O’Malley) is listed at +10,000.

The Republican caucus is going to be unpredictable. Donald Trump has held the lead in most polls that have been released, but Ted Cruz has been making ground on the business mogul. Trump took a gamble to not partake in the debate ahead of the Iowa Caucus, something that amazes me because I never thought he would pass up an opportunity to talk. Despite the gamble, Trump is still a -250 favorite to win the caucus for the Republicans.

As an overview, the Iowa Caucus will work differently for the two parties’. The Republicans use a simple straw poll, in which whoever gets the most checks next to their name wins. The Democrat's process is more complicated with a candidate needing to receive 15 percent of votes in a precinct to move to a county convention and then it gets incredibly complicated from there. Trust me, it's easier to understand the intimate details of the Large Hadron Collider.
