What Are the Odds Donald Trump Wins Re-Election?
Trump shortened this week, to -125. It’s a bit of a shocker, given that his negative approval rating is beginning to widen again after briefly tightening after good news on the coronavirus front, and 888’s swing-state odds project a win for Biden (more on that later).
However, there’s still plenty of time before Election Day, and with popular vote polls tighter than Hillary Clinton’s nearly evaporated 2016 lead, Trump’s position could quickly strengthen in a short time. Signs of China being dishonest on the origins and national toll of coronavirus might also factor into a better PR week for the president.
Joe Biden 2020 Odds
Biden drifted to +125 this week. It’s been a mixed week for Biden, who on the one hand picked up the endorsement of his old boss and the official endorsement of rival Bernie Sanders, a late-breaking sexual assault accusation against him started hitting mainstream press. While most outlets were fairly skeptical of the story, it’s something that could bubble up later.

Andrew Cuomo 2020 Odds
Andrew Cuomo holds at +3300 this week. The New York governor continues to be popular among Democrats for his coronavirus response and holds a lot of sway with party elites, but with Biden cruising toward a majority, the opportunity to replace the former vice president is dwindling.
Hillary Clinton 2020 Odds
Clinton remains at +4000 this week after doing little to support her “candidacy.”
Mike Pence 2020 Odds
Pence drifts to +4000 this week. He’s been increasingly sidelined from public view by the President, who prefers to lead the daily coronavirus press conferences himself. He’s also shown no indication of the intra-party coup his 2020 candidacy would require.
Michelle Obama 2020 Odds
The former First Lady remains a +5000 shot after endorsing her husband’s former VP in Biden. She’s shown no indication of running for president herself, and her opportunity to do so is dwindling.
Candidates with Longer than +10000 Odds
Sanders (+10000) becomes the only candidate in this category after the removal of Jill Stein, no longer the presumptive Green Party nominee, and Tulsi Gabbard, who appears to be holding firm on her no-third-party-run commitment.
Swing State Odds
Odds opened on 888sport for swing states this week. Of note, the new odds make the Democrats favorites to win Arizona (-134 to +100), Michigan (-200 to +150), Pennsylvania (-177 to +125) and Wisconsin (-125 to -112), which would signal an Electoral College victory (a Democratic gain of 57 EV) in contradiction of the Trump/Biden odds if all other 2016 results remained constant.
