(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Even though the results of the 2020 presidential election are not yet known, as recounts and lawsuits loom, bookies are already suggesting that President Donald Trump is the favorite to win the 2024 presidential election.
Joe Short of Gambling.com wrote that while the president is still refusing to concede defeat, his “mind may soon start tracking to 2024.”
“The businessman holds a huge sway over the Republican party and millions of loyal voters – so were he to decide to run again, there’s little others in the GOP could do to stop him,” Short explained. “Trump would be 78 come the next election but has already proved the polls and betting odds wrong by winning the 2016 vote. At 10/1 it is not out of the question that the man who rocked American politics four years ago will be celebrating a second term four years from now.”
Should President Donald Trump ultimately lose the 2020 election, he would be roughly the same age as Joe Biden is now when he is sworn in for the second time in 2025.
The bookies offer some good odds for various other candidates, too. Vice President Mike Pence is one of the top candidates on there, with odds at 16-1. The daughter of President Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, is also considered a highly likely candidate, with odds of 25-1. Perhaps most interestingly, though, former Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, is up there too. Haley is not considered to be a Trump-like candidate in any way, with politics that resemble George W. Bush than they do the modern Republican Party.
If Haley stood against Trump in the primary races for the next candidate, assuming President Trump loses this time, it could potentially cause a rift in the party.
Short wrote that Vice President Pence has been “remarkably quiet since election day.”
“The 61-year-old appears to have kept his powder dry for now but will no-doubt be a notable presence within the Republican party between here and 2024,” he said. “Pence may not be flavour of the month at present but a former VP holds sway when it comes to deciding presidential candidates, and Pence has the experience and connections to go for the top job.”
Regarding Ivanka Trump, Short referenced how another bookmaker, Ladbrokes, thinks that the daughter of the president would be the preferred candidate of the president’s children.
“And while Donald Trump Jr may be touted by some as the possible next Trump name on the ballot paper, it is Ivanka Trump who is more likely to appeal to the American public,” he wrote.
The president’s daughter would draw votes from the mid-West family-orientated middle-class voter, who didn’t vote for the ‘Make America Great Again’ Trumpian politics this time but who will revert back to the Republicans should a more mainstream figurehead – even if she has the Trump name – is on the ballot paper,” he added.
Would you support Ivanka Trump over Donald Trump Jr. in 2024?
Or are you holding out hope for a return of the president?
