Paddy Power decide that Donald Trump will beaten in the Race to the White House by Hillary Clinton
Paddy Power are renowned for early pay-outs before an event has been decided and they’ve just paid out on Hillary Clinton becoming the next President of the USA.
Clinton is massive favourite to win the upcoming election, although Donald Trump has millions of Americans in his corner and many feel as though the outcome is going to be a lot closer than the odds suggest.
However, Paddy Power reckon that Hillary will follow in the footsteps of husband Bill and become President of the country, thus becoming the most powerful person in the process.
America has never had a female president before, although the same could be said of not having a black president before Barack Obama made history by replacing George W Bush in the White House.
It appears as though Hillary Clinton will keep the Democrats in power and Paddy Power have paid out a large sum of money to punters who thought that she was going to win the US election.
A Paddy Power spokesman told bookies.com: “Trump seems to think that a woman’s place is in the house and, for once, we agree with The Donald. Hillary Clinton is likely to be seen in the White House for several years to come and we congratulate all customers who backed her to become President of the USA.
“We’re not expecting a shock on Election Day, with the country likely to vote against electing a man who has shown himself to be unfit to run as President.
“Trump gave it a hell of a shot going from a rank outsider to the Republican candidate but the recent flood of revelations have halted his momentum and his chances now look as patchy as his tan.
“Recent betting trends have shown one way traffic for Hillary and punters seemed to have called it 100 per cent correct. Despite Trump’s Make America Great Again message appealing to many disillusioned voters, it looks as though America are going to put a woman in the White House”.
Paddy Power generally get their early pay-outs correct although there have been expensive mistakes in the past. Most will hope that the Irish firm don’t get this one wrong, with Trump’s election to the White House likely to prompt a good deal of despair based on his utterances leading up to Election Day.
