This thread is about betting on US Politics. Not talking about which politics are good and which are bad.

Bet365 has odds for the democrat and republic nomination.

I think Hillary is a lock for the democrats, the odds agree as she is 1.30 to 1.

I want to bet on the Republican Prez Nominee so I have a reason to watch american news, lol. After watching Veep and Scandal, I am so intrigued by american primaries.

The odds

Jeb Bush 3.25
Marco Rubio 4.5
Scott Walker 5
Rand Paul 8
Chris Christie 8
Ted Cruz 13
Mike Huckabee 18
Rick Perry 19

Not listing the rest bc I think they have no chance.



I am thinking about putting my money on Marco Rubio. I think he should be the favourite over Jeb Bush.

Especially if Hillary gets the nomination, I think the Republicans best counter would be a young, fast-tracking, cuban boy!

I know nothing about US Politics, but just from a pure aesthetic view, I think this Rubio kid (he's 44), would be their best counter to Hillary. He isn't an old white guy. He's an ethnic young guy.

Any thoughts? Or am I just a degen?

Walker is over valued. Cruz might be undervalued for the long shots. I'd probably pound bush, but that seems like a public play

It's between Bush and Rubio. Paul has no shot. Walker I would put at best, 10-1. Christie would be a factor if he could put his baggage behind him but a lot of news outlets have it out for him so I don't see it happening
Everyone else is dead in the water. Huckabee listed 18-1 is more like 1800-1. Same for Cruz. Pragmatically, I guy like Cruz could get the Nom but he will get killed in the general election and the RNC knows this so he has less of a shot than it seems

Really? They never taught me that when I moved here. Pierre Elliott was a hero, I was told.

Quote

Young Trudeau: Fascist, anti-Semite, and separatist

A new biography of the former prime minister, whom Canadians have long been taught to regard as a great liberal politician, reveals that as a youth and young man, Mr. Trudeau was an anti-Semite, admired fascist dictators such as Hitler and Mussolini, promoted revolution and longed for an independent and Catholic Quebec that would be home only to francophones.
