More bettors at one British bookmaker are backing Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic Party's 2020 nominee than they are any of the candidates actually running in the race, giving her better odds of winning than Senator Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke, among others.
At the bookmaker Ladbrokes, Clinton has seen enough backing by bettors to rise to the seventh favorite for the 2020 nomination at 20/1. Booker, a senator of New Jersey, is eighth at 33/1. O'Rourke, a former representative of Texas, is ninth at 50/1.
"We're baffled, to be honest," Matthew Shaddick, head of political betting at Ladbrokes, told Newsweek. "We've taken more bets on her to be the Democratic candidate than any of the other runners.
The odds reflect the view of the betting market. The shorter a person's odds, the greater the chance the betting market believes he or she has of winning the contest because bettors are placing money on them.
"She would be by far the worst result for usi.e., the one we would lose most money on," Shaddick said. "Hence, her odds have come in from 50/1 to 20/1."
Leading the polls is former Vice President Joe Biden. But Biden is not the favorite in the Ladbrokes market for the Democrats' 2020 nominee. The favorite is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 6/4. Biden is currently the second favorite at 5/2.
In third place is independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a democratic socialist, on 5/1.
"I've seen some speculation about what might happen if Biden had to drop out for some reasonperhaps that would leave a space for her to occupy in the field?" Shaddick said of Clinton.

Major liberal fascist wet dreams.
Hillary Clinton may soon be under indictment for sedition and trading in classified information.
They’re right. That evil witch is never going away.
Yeah. Six feet under.
She was NOT healthy during 2016. Had she won she would have soon been dead from all the stress not only of being president but also maintaining nearly half a century of deceit and deception and corruption.
Hillary Clinton should be damn thankful that she lost. Doubtless it saved her life.

She likely has frequent blood transfusions of blood from youthful donors to keep her alive now.
She is rarely filmed standing or walking anymore (honestly); she’s in terrible shape.
I would take that bet in a heartbeat. Hillary won’t be the candidate so it’d be easy money.
Some of you all are sounding like they did about Trump. If she doesn’t die or go into a coma, there’s a good chance she will be it. She has not gone away and yes, they are that stupid.
Dont tease me.
I wonder what the odds are on Michael Mooshelle O?
I’d take some of that (betting) action.
Desperation awaits the Dems in the next few months, all of the current candidates are losers.
She cant hide that life support equipment under her moo moo forever. FDR might have fooled the public with his polio, but she isnt going to pull it off with her illness.
This is truly the “things that go bump in the night” scenario.
Warren had better get security a la The Immortals
What a pair. One more and we have a Macbeth scenario
“I wonder what the odds are on Michael Mooshelle O?”
Rush Limbaugh every so often considers it. I don’t think there is a chance she will get in, with a snowball chance in hell of winning. Can you imagine her debating Trump?
I don’t think Americans want another four years of the Magic Negro.
LOL!!!not unless somebody’s got one of her clones whipped into better shape than old Joe Biden’s......
So the Brits like ILLary in the election. I wonder who they like in today’s Giants/Red Sox game?
