So I'm understanding you're only allowed to bet $450?

Interesting that the bookies are seeing a Trump win more than the MSM and pollsters that poll more Dems all the time........04-cheers

Unless the Dems come up with a candidate who can appeal to swing voters, and can avoid constant gaffes and/or ridiculously stupid policy proposals, I think Trump wins easily.

And this is coming from someone who isn't a Repub, didn't vote for Trump last time, and won't vote for him this time, either.

This ^^^

With the exception of I am contemplating voting for him this time all while holding my nose and disbelieving that the current state of affairs dictates that I do so to ensure a Dem doesn't get in because they've officially lost they got damn minds.

He's not winning easily in the polls right now (but maybe that's a good sign for him). It's the Dems race to lose since his voting bloc is capped.

So his “cap” last time was ‘no chance’. What’s his voting bloc capped at this time Nostradamus?

But are you going to vote against him? Of course you don't need to answer, but that's the question a lot of dems are going to have to ask themselves next november.

Last time Trump had no path to 270 EV. Which explains why he was able to get over 300.

the max allowable on this wager is 300....at -150, that is why it's 450 to win 300...

There are people so dead set against him, while it might be a YUGE electoral college win, it will be by a lot of narrow wins.

RE: anyone betting on the 2020 election?
I'm beginning to agree that despite not showing as such in the polls yet, the more we hear from the dems, the more it is going to cement Trump as the favorite. Biden is a buffoon and a gaffe machine, that can't go 45 minutes before he starts slurring his words, and pochahontas is a nut.

No one else is even viable at this point. Tulsi ended camila's campaign, mayor pete is cringe and will never eclipse 0% of the black vote, and bernie has been exposed as someone that just regurgitates the same 3 talking points.

I retain the right to change that opinion if Trump follows through with any more gun control in attempt to virtue signal to the dems' outrage, as if he gives them something, they'll be satisfied and won't just come back for more after the next shooting. If he gives in to them on universal background checks, he's done.

Its the same thing they were saying November 2016. And his negatives are less than they were then.

William Hill lost their asses back in 2016 because they didnt ignore the polls. They were so lop-sided heavy on Clinton bets that they decided to offer to pay a lot of those off prior to the election at a discount. They would have made a huge profit had they sat tight, instead they had to pay off all of the Trump side, after they had already paid off a lot on the Clinton side, and they lost their ass in the process.

I wasn't even looking at it from a betting aspect since I don't gamble, etc. Thanks for the info though (I had to google William Hill). 04-cheers
