FGiven Paddy Power go 1/6 about Donald Trump being the Republican candidate in the 2020 Presidential election, 2/1 about him winning the election is a truly remarkable price. Your money may be tied-up for 20 months but people invest in five-year saving schemes – so I’m told.
Most people are more interested in the shorter term investment which is identifying who will lead the opposition from the Democrat Party. Just this week veteran Bernie Sanders declared he was running for the role for a second time. He’s not excited the bookies, they have him chalked-up at 8/1.
Early favourite, Beto O’Rouke is now out to 6/1 as Kamala Harris, a 54-
year-old Senator from California, has moved in to 3/1 favouritism. Female, mixed-race and an exceptional public speaker, she has loads going for her.
But, firm in the belief the Democrats will turn to a woman in their quest to topple President Trump, I much prefer Kirsten Gillibrand a 52-year-old mother of two, originally an attorney, who has been a New York Senator for ten years.
