Betting Odds Are Predicting a Democratic President in 2020

For the first time in months, there has been a significant change on the odds table when it comes to the 2020 United States presidential election. 

The latest odds released by Bovada show Donald Trump as the +220 betting favorite with potential Democratic nominees Kamala Harris and Beto O’Rourke nipping at his heels at +500 and +900 respectively. Since his election in 2016, this is the highest odds for Trump’s re-election and the lowest odds for any of the potential Democratic challengers. 

At the same time, the Democratic party is a -150 favorite to win the 2020 election while the Republicans have their highest odds yet at +120. 

2020 Presidential Candidates

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump (+220) knows how to rally Republican voters and it has continued to work. Day after day there is a firestorm of tweets from and incredulous news reports about the current president, however nothing major enough to shift Trump from being the top Republican in the land. At least, yet.

Recently, Trump has seen more and more Republicans publicly disagreeing with him, something that undoubtedly drives him crazy. With the recent arrest and indictment of his close associate Roger Stone, the seat has to be hotter than ever and all this just as Democratic candidates are declaring their intentions. 

Kamala Harris (+500)

Kamala Harris waffled a little on whether she would run for the Democratic nomination but eventually announced that, yes, she will be taking a run at the nomination. Coming from California, she already has the support of a number of celebrities, Ellen DeGeneres chief among them, and will look to become the first female president of the United States. 

O’Rourke helped inspire a shifting electorate in Texas that saw record numbers come out for the midterm elections but at the end of the day, Ted Cruz won by a slim 51-48 percent margin. O’Rourke’s popularity, though, has thrust him into the national spotlight as he and Harris are now the two betting front-runners to represent the Democrats in 2020. 

Biggest Movers Over the Last Few Weeks

Michael Bloomberg’s name resurfaced on the odds table at +5000 after a period of time when he was off the board completely. In the last couple of days, the 77-year-old has stated that his age does not preclude him from becoming president and that he believes he could win. Since then, his odds have jumped to +2500. 

At the same time, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat from Hawaii, has officially announced her candidacy for 2020, after being re-elected during the midterms. A former member of the National Guard, Gabbard will first need to navigate her way through an expected crush of nominees in her own party before running against Donald Trump. 

Bernie Sanders, who has his fair share of support among Democratic voters, has seen his odds dip to +2000 as reports about his conduct with staffers during his 2016 campaign have resurfaced. 

Celebrity Candidate Groundswell Has Slowed

With Trump emerging from the world of real estate and reality TV, there was early consideration given to some potential celebrity candidates for president in 2020, however that discussion has given way to more seasoned political candidates from the left. If you think there’s a shot, though, you can still get your bets in on Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (+5000), Oprah Winfrey (+3500) or even Elon Musk’s buddy, Joe Rogan (+20000).
