Bernie Sanders odds cut but far from favourite

February 20th, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Politics, Press Release

Veteran US senator Bernie Sanders has confirmed he intends to run for President again.

Sanders lost the 2016 Democratic primary to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – who was defeated to the White House by Donald Trump.

Now Sanders has confirmed that he is again going to run to become the Democratic Presidential nominee – who will then do battle with Trump – who is set to run for second term.

Sanders’s odds have been cut to around 6/1 from 10/1 – but he is still considered an outsider behind Kamala Harris, Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The presidential battle for 2020 is already well underway, and it is going to take a huge effort to beat Donald Trump who is still firm favouirte at 7/4.

“Bernie Sanders has confirmed himself in the battle and is 6/1 to win the Democratic race and twice that to win the overall prize at 12/1.

“The favourite to win the Democratic race, though, remains Californian senator Kamala Harris and punters clearly believe the American left will again go with a women to challenge Trump.”

Selected odds:

Democratic Presidential Candidate odds: 3/1 Kamala Harris; 7/2 Joe Biden; 11/2 Beto O’Rourke; 6/1 Bernie Sanders; 9/1 Sherrod Brown; 10/1 Amy Klobuchar; 12/1 Elizabeth Warren; 12/1 Tulsi Gabbard; 14/1 Cory Booker; 14/1 Michael Avenatti; 16/1 Kirsten Gillibrand; 20/1 Catherine Cortez-Masto; 20/1 Eric Holder; 20/1 Hillary Clinton; 20/1 Mark Cuban; 20/1 Mark Zuckerberg; 20/1 Michael Bloomberg;

2020 US Presidential Election odds: 7/4 Donald Trump; 6/1 Kamala Harris; 13/2 Joe Biden; 9/1 Beto O’Rourke; 12/1 Bernie Sanders; 14/1 Sherrod Brown; 16/1 Amy Klobuchar
