Trump Favourite To Win Again In S. Carolina

Bookmakers William Hill have already been forced to cut their odds for Donald Trump to follow up his New Hampshire triumph by winning again in the South Carolina Primary. William Hill initially made Trump 4/7 favourite (stake 7 for profity of 4), but political punters plunged in to take those odds, and he has now been slashed to 4/9 (stake 9 for profit of 4) favourite.

'Trumpmania has broken out amongst political punters and he is by some distance the best backed candidate in the race - with one William Hill client from Cornwall, John Mappin, already set to win £60,000 if The Donald goes all the way to the White House' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
