Do you think Donald Trump will be nominated to run for President of the United States by the Republican party? Casino’s in Las Vegas have begun to set odds for each candidate in the current primaries.
On the Republican roster Donald Trump moved from a 25:1 shot on August 5, to a 7:1 winner as of August 25. Trailing Behind Trump is Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 3.75:1, down from 3.5:1, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Senator Marco Rubio who both fell to 14:1 odds, down from 10:1 and 12:1 respectively.
Other Republican candidates include John Kasich who rocketed from 40:1 to 25:1 odds, and Ted Cruz and retired Detroit neurosurgeon Ben Carson who are now tied at 33:1 after rising from 40:1 and 45:1 respectively. Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina are tied at 50:1.
Rand Paul has plummeted to 100:1 from a recent 25:1 rating. While Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and former Senator Rick Santorum are at 150:1, and Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas has fallen even lower.
For the Democrats former Secretary of State and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is basically even money on all books. Clinton did slip from 11/10 to 10/11. Vermont senator Bernie Sanders dropped a bit from 12:1 to 14:1. Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to announce his presidential run fell move from 20:1 to 18:1.
The next cloesst Democrat is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has repeatedly said she is not running in 2016, at 66:1.
With a long season of campaign still ahead of us these numbers will surely change in the coming weeks and months ahead.
