It has been a turbulent few weeks for US politics, with the Trump – Clinton war gaining more and more friction with each new day. With recent claims of sexism, Trump has quickly seen longer odds, seeing bookies in favour of his loss. Confident in Clinton's triumph Clinton is expected to inflict a heavy defeat in the race to become the 45th President of the United States. Seeing the betting industry fall into a state of frenzy, political spread betting giants, Sports Index, predict a 'landslide', with the controversial Republican nominee expected to see 327 electoral college nominations given to his opponent.
Ed Fulton, political trading spokesman for Sporting Index, commenting said:
“Hillary Clinton has benefitted from a disastrous two weeks for the Trump campaign and looks set for a landslide victory. But The Donald has defied polls and pundits many times before and could do so again.”
He added: “It doesn’t look great for the Republicans at the moment, yet remember Trump was even further behind in June and managed to bring the race back to a virtual tie in just weeks. A month is a long time in politics, so Clinton supporters would be wise to leave the celebratory red, white and blue balloons unfilled for now.”
Making us second guess his own tip the truth is you never know what the future of politics holds, hence why it makes such an interesting subject to place a spread bet on.
