US Election Odds: Presidential Election Poll Gap Narrows, But Bookies Are Calling It For Hilliary Clinton

While it now looks somewhat comfortable for Clinton, it’s worth remembering that Donald Trump’s odds of winning were once quoted at 150/1.

Bookmakers William Hill had shortened Trump’s odds nine times since October 15, most recently from 2/1 (33% chance) to 7/4 (36%). Meanwhile Clinton’s odds had lengthened nine times.

It’s likely though that the Democrat candidate will go into polling day as a clear favourite at odds of 1/5 (83% chance), with William Hill, while Trump is offered at 7/2 (22%).

William Hill also revealed it took a bet of £150,000 on Clinton to win Monday morning.

Hills also revealed that 69% of the individual bets they have taken have been for Trump, but 74% of all the stake money is for Clinton.

“The campaign has mirrored Brexit in that there have been far more individual bets for the outsider, but the biggest bets have been on the favourite,” spokesman Graham Sharpe said.

CLINTON’S FAVOURABLE RATING IS BETTER THAN TRUMP’S

While both candidates are historically unpopular with a majority of Americans, Clinton is marginally more popular than GOP nominee Donald Trump ― a good sign for her with just two days to go.
