The 2020 Presidential election is still over two years away, but the top candidates for the most prestigious and powerful job in the world have already started their respective campaigns. President Donald Trump is looking for another successful election day triumph and four more years in the White House, while a handful of Democrats are looking to limit his time in the Oval Office to one term. With that being said, here is a look at the early 2020 Presidential election odds.
Odds as of July 16, 2018 courtesy of Sportsbook.ag.
Elizabeth Warren (+2000)
Warren, 69, is arguably the fastest-rising Democratic candidate of the bunch. The law school professor turned U.S. Senator from Massachusetts is clearly preparing to make a run 2020, and she is quickly gaining popularity throughout the country. Will she be able to gain enough traction to win the Democratic primary? Only time will tell.
Joe Biden (+1500)
According to a recent article in the New York Times, Biden is preparing to spend “up to four days a week after Labor Day” on the campaign trail. The 75-year-old former vice president is reportedly planning to deliver a message of bipartisanship, urge his fellow Democrats to “rise above” President Trump’s taunts, and connect with a younger generation of Democrats.
Of course, if Biden is serious about a presidential run, he will have an ‘ace in the hole’ in the form of Barack Obama — his best friend and the immensely popular 44th President of the United States.
Bernie Sanders (+800)
According to these odds, Sanders is the favorite to win the Democratic nomination in 2020. The U.S. Senator from Vermont came close to defeating Hilary Clinton for the nomination at the controversial Democratic National Convention in 2016, and his following remains loyal and strong. That said, there are questions within his own party about whether Sanders — and his socialist views — can realistically win in a general election.
Donald Trump (+140)
President Trump is currently the heavy favorite to win the 2020 Presidential election and become the 15th two-term President in United State history. The odds will likely shift once the Democratic party has a clear-cut front-runner for their nomination, but that likely won’t happen anytime soon.
Whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying that Trump has a deeply loyal following and a team of advisors who are clearly capable of running a well-planned and cutting-edge campaign.
