Hillary Heading For White House As Odds-On Favourite

FOLLOWING HILLARY CLINTON's claims that she already has enough support to becme the official Democrat candidate in the race to the White House, bookmakers William Hill have cut her odds of becoming President from 1/2 to 2/5, (stake $5 for profit of $2) with her probable opponent, Donald Trump, quoted at odds of 9/4 (stake $4 for profit of $9).

Hills haven't yet ruled Bernie Sanders out of the race, quoting him at 14/1.

While her husband Bill was President, William Hill offered odds of 50/1 that Hillary would ever occupy the same position so may face paying out an unknown number of historic bets.

Donald Trump was an unfancied 150/1 outsider to win the Election when he first announced his intention of running, but he has been very well backed since. One Hill's client, John Mappin, from Cornwall, will cllected some £80,000 if Trump wins after placing THIRTY bets on him.
