Casino’s Set Odds On Presidential Race For Both Parties

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.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Is New Celebrity Apprentice, Replacing Donald Trump

Both are Republicans. One is a former governor of California. The other could be the next president of the United States. Both can now lay claim to hosting NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will take over the reality franchise replacing Donald Trump who NBC ousted.
“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the Apprentice franchise,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming for NBC Entertainment. “Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves. It was Arnold’s personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today’s audiences, that made him the man to hire. The Celebrity Apprentice … will be back!”
Celebrity Apprentice will return for the 2016–17 television season with Schwarzenegger as “CEO.”
“I have always been a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice and the way it showcases the challenges and triumphs of business and teamwork,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “I am thrilled to bring my experience to the boardroom and to continue to raise millions for charity. Let’s get started!”
Celebrity Apprentice has continued to be a solid ratings performer for NBC. The most recent season averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 despite the nearly yearlong gap between the start of production in early 2014 and the season’s debut in January 2015. The show was renewed in February. However, NBC announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that the series would not return until the 2016-2017 season, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Added executive producer Mark Burnett: “After leaving the show to run for political office, Donald made it clear that he wanted The Celebrity Apprentice to be able to continue to raise millions of dollars annually for worthy causes, and now NBC and I have found an amazing new leader to do just that. Gov. Schwarzenegger will use his vast and highly successful business, political and media experience to drive this hit franchise to new heights.”

A Lot Of Americans Are Thumbs Down On Roger Goodell And Tom Brady

Football players aren't the only ones who disagree with how NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has handled the Tom Brady situation. Two polls released Thursday found that more Americans than not disapprove of Goodell's "Deflategate" decisions and think the NFL investigation was unfair.In the Emerson College poll, 41 percent of those surveyed disapprove of how Goodell has dealt with Deflategate. Just 22 percent approve. In May, Goodell issued a four-game suspension for the New England Patriots quarterback after an independent investigation found that it was "more probable than not" that Brady was "generally aware" that footballs were being deflated before games. Brady appealed the suspension to Goodell, who upheld his own decision. Brady and the NFL Players Association then went to federal court, arguing that the league's internal appeals process lacked due process. Last week, U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman also critiqued Goodell's work, throwing out Brady's suspension because it was "premised on several significant legal deficiencies" and did not adhere to the league's collective bargaining agreement.Americans are more torn on whether Brady should actually miss some games. Forty-seven percent think he should be suspended, while 53 percent say he should not. As for whether the Patriots are cheaters or not, the public is just as divided: 48 percent think they are; 52 percent say otherwise. The Emerson poll also found that Donald Trump's supporters are more likely than supporters of any other presidential candidate to believe that the Patriots aren't cheaters and that Brady should not be suspended. Earlier this week, Brady confirmed that he has a Trump "Make America Great Again" hat and that the two are friends. A separate YouGov poll similarly found that Americans are more likely to think the NFL's Deflategate investigation was not fair and impartial. Forty-one percent say it was unfair, while 38 percent say it was. Twenty percent don't care.Majorities of the YouGov respondents still believe that the Patriots are cheaters (58 percent to 21 percent) and that Brady was aware of the ball deflation (54 percent to 13 percent) and should be suspended (55 percent to 26 percent). The rest don't care. Brady is set to play in New England's season opener on Thursday night.Emerson College surveyed 995 likely U.S. voters using automated calls to landlines from Sept. 5 to 8. YouGov surveyed 1,000 U.S. adults from Sept. 4 to 7, using a sample selected from its opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
