LAS VEGAS, NV – There are a dozen Democratic candidates for the 2020 presidential election (so far), but the number of challengers doesn’t seem to be translating into victory for the Left judging by the odds for re-election success bookmakers are giving President Donald Trump.
From the Washington Examiner:
“The latest odds, taken after Sanders joined the 2020 race on Tuesday, put Trump as a 3-2 lock to win re-election followed most closely by Sen. Kamala Harris, at 10-1.
And the odds of Sanders winning didn’t budge despite announcing his race, said Dave Mason, the sportsbook brand manager of BetOnline.ag.
“There were no changes to Sanders’ odds following the announcement. We had it as a foregone conclusion that he will be in the Democratic mix,” he said.
Sanders’ odds were as high as 28-1 in April 2017. “We did take some bets on Sanders this morning — he has the fourth highest bet count out of the Democrats behind Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Beto O’Rourke,” he added.
Trump’s odds of re-election haven’t changed. In August, for example, BetOnline.ag had him at the very same 3-2.[…]”
The Left and media (a redundant pairing of terms, admittedly) have been smearing Trump to the best of their ability since his 2016 campaign, but even to the extent they have been successful in damaging the president none of it makes up for the unpopularity of the radical positions championed by the Democrats challenging him.
Bernie Sanders’ announcing his candidacy and unveiling his platform only serve to remind American voters how loony the Left has become. If you though that heads were exploding among the Left and Establishment when Trump got elected in 2016, just imagine how they will react when he wins re-election after four years of their no holds barred approach to ruining the MAGA movement.
