Could Hillary Be Bern-ed?

Bernie Sanders has emerged as an unlikely threat to hot favourite Hillary Clinton's chances of becoming US President, with bookmakers William Hill slashing his odds of becoming Democrat candidate from 28/1 to 7/1 second favourite, and of becoming President from 66/1 to 16/1 fifth favourite.

'Mr Sanders, a previously little known 73 year old Senator from Vermont, has come from nowhere on a growing betting bandwagon to become a serious contender' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILLIAM HILL.......Democrat candidate...1/5 Hillary Clinton; 7/1 Bernie Sanders; 18/1 Joe Biden. Others on request.

To be next elected President: 11/10 Clinton; 7/2 Jeb Bush; 7/1 Marco Rubio; 10/1 Scott Walker; 16/1 Sanders; 20/1 Rand Paul. Others on request.
