Oddsmakers: President Trump Has Best Odds For Being Reelected

Oddsmakers are predicting President Donald Trump has a good chance of being reelected in 2020.

Wednesday and Thursday night’s “contentious debate helped the odds that President Trump will win reelection,” said

The Washington Examiner reported. “Odds of reelection are the best for Trump since he won in 2016.”

The president’s odds for reelection were 10/11 after the debates, compared to Kamala Harris, who came in at 5/2.

US-Bookies reported before the debates that Trump had a 45.2% chance of winning reelection. The president enjoyed a 51.2 to 48.8% lead over his closest rival, former VP Joe Biden at that time.

“These numbers are an expression of probability of each candidate winning 2020, derived from the global betting markets (worth $100m or more), where investors are asked to make an accurate prediction as to who they think will win the race,” said a US-Bookies spokesman. “The money wagered on each candidate dictates the odds and therefore the percent chance, based on simple laws of supply and demand. In 2016, some election simulators and polls gave Trump under a 2% chance of success, while the betting market comfortably gave the president anywhere between a 25% and 40% chance of success.”

“The message from the bookmakers remains crystal clear,” a press release said. “There has never been a better chance of another four years of Trump in the White House.”

Poll: President Trump Gets High Marks, Outscores Obama On Economy, National Security

Voters rank President Trump well ahead of Barack Obama in his handling of the economy at this point in their presidencies. The President’s national security approval is at the same high level that his predecessor enjoyed just after the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now think President Trump is doing a good or excellent job handling economic issues. That’s up from 39% in mid-2017 shortly after Trump had taken office and just short of the high of 51% last October.

Forty-seven percent (47%) give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of national security issues. That’s up from 41% in January 2018 and a high for Trump to date.
