Bernie Backed- Again

BERNIE SANDERS' odds of becoming US President have been cut from 25/1 to 16/1and again to 12/1 third favourite by William Hill as the race to the White House begins to move into its latter stages.

However, Hills still see Hillary Clinton as the most likely winner, quoting her at 4/9 favourite, with Donald Trump drifting out from 11/4 second favourite to 3/1.

'Mr Sanders has begun to attract some serious support in recent days, and with many observers expecting the Republicans to end up with a brokered convention there is still some doubt that the ultimate showdown will be between the hot favourites, Clinton and Trump, who are 1/3 to be the final two' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

PRESIDENTIAL ODDS....4/9 Clinton; 3/1 Trump; 12/1 Sanders; 22/1 Cruz; 28/1 Kasich; 50/1 Biden; 50/1 Ryan; 100/1 Romney.
