- President Donald Trump currently holds a (+110) chance of winning the 2020 Presidential Election.
- For the second time since being elected, Trump is the underdog to Joe Biden (-140) to win the election.
- Trump has also been seeing a decline in his popularity with the American people due according to polls.
WASHINGTON – Due to multiple current events, President Trump’s public numbers have dropped dramatically.
In a poll by CNN released Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is shown winning by 14 points.
This would make Biden the number one choice for 55% of voters to become the next President of the United States. In true Trump fashion, the President does not agree with these poll numbers and made that publicly known via his Twitter account as soon as the poll came out.
CNN Polls are as Fake as their Reporting. Same numbers, and worse, against Crooked Hillary. The Dems would destroy America!

However, as Trump has now been viewed as the underdog in both the mobile sports betting apps, as well as the polls, betting on Trump has never been so profitable.
Trumping The Election Odds
Trump currently sits at +110 odds to win the 2020 US election. As he was listed from -130 to -350 over the course of the last two years to win his reelection campaign, bettors can an excellent hedging opportunity.
Likewise, bettors also have the opportunity to modify how this bet is placed.
Donald Trump Election Special
- To Lose Electoral College & Popular Vote (-130)
- To Win Electoral College & Popular Vote (+225)
- To Win Electoral College, Lose Popular Vote (+240)
- To Lose Electoral College, Win Popular Vote (+2100)
If a bettor is sold on the fact that Trump will win the 2020 US presidency, the +110 odds can certainly be taken. However, bettors can increase their payout by more than double simply by picking the correct prop bet.
Betting that Trump will lose the popular vote (as the CNN poll numbers would suggest) but win the Electoral College (+240) is the smartest move for Trump supporters.
In 2016, Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton but won the Electoral College 306-232.
A lot can happen in five months and numbers for both Trump and Biden will rise and fall with the current happenings in the nation and the world. But if history were to repeat itself this time around, odds on legal sportsbooks are looking really well for a gambler looking to earn some money with their political bets.
