Another Clinton-Bush encounter? Maybe. Maybe not
With all the focus on the British general election and its aftermath we’ve tended to ignore what’s set to be massive political betting event – the 2016 White House race. What I like about them is the whole series of events and elections that lead to the first Tuesday in November when the voters actually decide.
With Barack Obama due to step down we have serious battles in prospect for both the Democratic party and Republican nomination. The former looks the most settled with Hillary Clinton, who’ll be 69 on polling day, looking very strong for the former and George Bush’s brother, Jeb, appearing very competitive for the latter.
The best bookie price you can get on Hillary for the nomination is 2/7 with Bet365 which to my mind is crazy given the time period and the potential for things to go wrong.
In the GOP race Bet365 have Jeb Bush at 9/4 with Rubio on 7/2 and Scott Walker on 4/1.
I’ve still got hope that my 50/1 bet on Rand Paul might come good.
