The Candidates’ Market Report
Recent polling points to a majority of American support for skills-based entry for new immigrants, suggesting that President Trump’s latest “Build America” plan will gain traction. There was a positive reaction from 55% of likely voters to Senator Lindsey Graham’s statement that “we have a perfect storm brewing at the border because of a series of broken and outdated laws related to asylum and children.” Only 24% disagreed with his assessment.
Despite gaining ground with his latest immigration proposals, the president appears to be suffering from the China trade war, seeing his approval ratings drop 6% over the period of a week – this is a major shift from his usual 2% variance which has become the standard over the last few months.
This Week’s Major Players
- Donald Trump – 44% ( – 6% )
- Congress – 22% ( no change )
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 – 11/5
- Bernie Sanders – 7/2
- Kamala Harris – 4/1
- Pete Buttigieg – 13/2
- Beto O’Rourke – 12/1
- Andrew Yang – 12/1
Former VP Joe Biden continues to solidify his lead in the Democrat pack as he squeezes another quarter point advantage over Bernie Sanders. Kamala Harris remains steadfastly on 4/1 and without a major campaign announcement looks set to be either just another runner up in an already crowded field – or perhaps there’s a chance she’ll be offered the number two spot on either a Biden of Sanders ticket?
The rest of the field is staying where it is with little or no movement; this signifies that anyone who wanted to bet on the candidates has already done so and that they are failing to get the public excited. However, it can all change with on big policy platform shift.
- Donald Trump – 11/10
- Joe Biden – 5/1
- Bernie Sanders – 6/1
- Kamala Harris – 7/1
- Pete Buttigieg – 11/1
- Beto O’Rourke – 14/1
- Elizabeth Warren – 20/1
- Andrew Yang – 20/1
- Cory Booker – 33/1
- Amy Klobuchar – 33/1
- Eric Swalwell – 175/1
President Trump’s odds keep on improving; despite poor approval ratings this week, he managed to squeeze an extra bump on the betting odds. Every single one of the other main contenders didn’t even move a quarter point – again telling us that there is no excitement around the candidates.
Joe Biden may be wiping the floor with the other Democrats in the primary field, but he’s still a 5/1 underdog on winning the presidency and these numbers just don’t change week in week out. There is no “consumer confidence” in the former VP right now. The DNC will no doubt be asking themselves if they are willing to be a $100 million campaign on a 5 to 1 longshot; closely followed by the question: who can realistically beat Trump?
- Impeachment – 1/8
- Resignation – 9/1
- Trump to publish the precise dimensions of his hands to his Twitter account – 50/1
- The Queen to ban Trump from the UK – 100/1
