Odds on Donald Trump – will he win a second term?

The US Presidential Election is less than 2 years away and attention has begun to turn to Donald Trump as the current incumbent. Despite polarising opinion on his appointment as the 45th US President in November 2016, much of the promised uproar has not come to fruition and as the second half of his tenure gets underway, question marks are being asked about both Trump and his potential replacements.

Trump in for the long haul?

Much of Trump’s election campaign centered around sensitive issues such as terrorism, immigration and threats of ‘building walls’ yet he has managed to keep relations diplomatic with most countries and has won fans over domestically too. He is however, subject to controversy on a daily basis and his views on minority groups and his past misdemeanours both personally and professionally still hang over his head. Regardless of the constant speculation, Donald Trump remains the favourite to win the 2020 US Presidential Election at 15/8 with Bet 365.

Lack of obvious opponents

The Democrats are yet to decipher who will go head to head with Trump but they look to have plenty of suitable candidates. Kamala Harris is the current front runner having served as California’s Attorney General from 2011 to 2017 and she is 6/1 with Bet Victor to become the first ever female US President. Texas based Beto O’Rourke has quickly generated public backing for his campaign having ousted Republican counterpart Ted Cruz. The charismatic businessman is 10/1 with Sporting Bet to replace Trump.

Left Field Picks

It’s easy to forget that Trump himself had no political experience prior to his appointment as the 45th US President and once more some names more accustomed to celebrity culture find themselves in the running with the bookmakers. TV show host Oprah Winfrey is a public critic of Trump and has spoken of her desire for change and she is 22/1 with Ladbrokes to win the 2020 election. Elsewhere, Michelle Obama is a very popular figure in America and beyond and would be familiar with White House workings and she is 25/1 with Marathon Bet to win office.
