- Joe Biden is favored to win the 2020 US Presidential Election with -130 odds.
- The First Presidential Debate between Biden-Trump is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29.
- The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg leaves a seat open for the Presidential Nomination of another Justice.
WASHINGTON — The stakes for the winning political party of the 2020 US Presidential Election have gotten higher as a seat on the Supreme Court is up for grabs with the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
In what could change the direction of the Court and US for many years from now, the battle over this position will likely drag on until the election is decided in November.
As we get closer to Election Day expect both the Joe Biden camp and Donald Trump’s advisor to ramp up their campaigns down the final stretch in the battle for the White House.
Odds to Win US Presidential Election 2020
- Joe Biden -130
- Donald Trump +110
Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden is the current favorite to win the US Presidential Election at legal sports betting sites. Those looking to make a profit on another Trump upset at the polls and sportsbooks should take advantage of the President’s +110 odds to remain in the White House for four more years.
The Supreme Court decision will now loom heavy on the minds of voters and Presidential Candidates alike. The Republican Party has already nominated one Supreme Court Justice during the Trump administration and they’ll look to make another selection to the Court.
President Trump has already given a timeline for when he will submit his nomination for the court.

The Democrats’ response to Trump’s Supreme Court nomination could cause a momentary shift in the former Vice President’s odds. Democratic Senators Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Chuck Schumer have said that they will fight to uphold Ginsburg’s last wish.

Democrats blocking the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice is the exact type of political karma the Republicans cooked up in 2016 when Senate Republicans refused to hold a vote for then-President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.
All things considered, the Supreme Court decision is going to raise tension between both Republicans and Democrats in the upcoming months. However, the biggest 2020 US Presidential Election odds shift might come after the first Presidential debate scheduled for Tuesday, September 29.
This debate will be the best time for both candidates to point out any flaws in each other’s proposed nominations for the US Supreme Court.
