150/1 Trump En Route To White House?

WITH DONALD TRUMP reportedly now boasting enough support to confirm his as the Republican nominee, bookmakers William Hill who had quoted him at 33/1 to do so, and at 150/1 to win the race to the White House, now make him just 7/4 (36% chance) to become the next President of the USA.

'Mr Trump's progress towards the nomination has been an astonishing transformation from complete outsider in the betting to red hot favourite' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'Once he is confirmed as the Republican candidate we can begin paying out to those who were shrewd enough to bet on him – and there are plenty of them'

JOHN MAPPIN, Donald Trump's biggest British backer, has placed THIRTY bets with bookmakers William Hill on the Republican front-runner to become the Party's nominee and then go on to win the race to the White House.

And after staking £7200 on the wagers the owner of Cornwall's Camelot Castle Hotel is looking at a potential a payout of £79,336.23 ($112,000) from William Hill.

'Mr Mappin began backing Donald Trump last July, when he was 20/1 to become the Republican candidate, and 33/1 to be President, and has been placing more bets ever since' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.'I doubt whether he has placed his final one yet!'

TO WIN RACE TO WHITE HOUSE....1/2 Hillary Clinton (66% chance); 7/4 Donald Trump (36% chance); 20/1 Bernie Sanders (4% chance)

TO BE DEMOCRAT NOMINEE...1/25 Clinton; 10/1 Sanders.
