Politics - US By Graham Sharpe

Bookies say bye,bye Biden

WITH JOE BIDEN opting out of the race to the White House, bookmakers William Hill make Hillary Clinton the red hot favourite at odds of 1/7 (stake $7 for potential profit of $1) to win the Democrat nomination - and have cut her odds from 6/5 (stake $5 for $6 profit) to 4/5 (stake $5 for $4 profit) favourite to be the next elected President.

'In Biden's absence - and we thought he'd have had a real chance- Hillary now becomes the one to beat on the Dem side - but Donald Trump would be the nightmare result for us and cost us a substantial six figure payout' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
