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.
