The Candidates’ Market Report
President Trump’s approval ratings remained steady this week. However, the overall trend for his popularity is on the up, despite May’s totals being 2 points lower than April’s. April was his highest monthly rating since February 2017, which was Trump’s first full month in the White House.
Congress continues to take a beating from the American public. This week saw another point drop despite a brief flurry of popularity last week. Pelosi, McConnell, and Schumer all received a minor bump in their ratings.
This Week’s Major Players
- Donald Trump – 48% ( no change )
- Congress – 20% ( – 1% )
What the Gamblers Say
As with most things, if you follow the money, you can’t go too far wrong. This is a selection of the odds for key races and events.
Democratic Party Nominee:
- Joe Biden – 2/1
- Bernie Sanders – 7/2
- Kamala Harris – 5/1
- Pete Buttigieg – 13/2
- Elizabeth Warren – 12/1
- Andrew Yang – 12/1
The only real movement in Democratic presidential contender betting odds this week was Kamala Harris, who despite making headlines and getting air time, dropped half a point to 5/1. Of the outliers, Elizabeth Warren managed to hit an all-time high of 9/1, up from 20/1 just a few short weeks ago.
Beto O’Rourke has slipped from the leaderboard. Pete Buttigieg, having received a whole lot of column inches as a result of an improved result in the latest Iowa polling, has not budged in the money markets from 13/2.
- Donald Trump – Even
- Joe Biden – 4/1
- Bernie Sanders – 13/2
- Kamala Harris – 8/1
- Pete Buttigieg – 11/1
- Elizabeth Warren – 18/1
- Beto O’Rourke – 20/1
- Andrew Yang – 20/1
- Amy Klobuchar – 30/1
- Cory Booker – 33/1
- Bill de Blasio – 100/1
- Eric Swalwell – 175/1
There is little change in the top spots this week. Warren climbs by two points displacing O’Rourke, who drops by the same. Eric Swalwell still hasn’t heard the news that at 175/1, his campaign is over and needs to be put to sleep.
A nationwide Rasmussen Report has Donald Trump beating Bill de Blasio handily pretty much everywhere except New York. A Sienna poll shows the Big Apple maintains its affection for de Blasio, giving him 12 points over Trump in a match-up.
- Impeachment – 1/8
- Resignation – 6/1
- Michael Moore to be deported – 80/1
- France will ask for the Statue of Liberty back – 200/1
