The odds continue to shorten on Donald Trump becoming President of the United States once more following his recent victory in Iowa. Peter Spencer has the lowdown.
Donald Trump easily won the Iowa Caucus - and now he's favourite to make a dramatic return to the White House.
At Iowa – traditionally the first state to vote in the race for presidency in 2024 – Trump powered home, with Ron DeSantis edging out Nikki Haley for second place.
South Carolina governor Haley looks like the only credible challenger to Trump... but it still looks a real longshot to stop the 45th President in his quest to the win back the keys for the White House.
She will have a better chance in New Hampshire and desperately needs a strong second-place finish, at least, in the Granite State on January 23.
Betfred now have Trump at 11/10 (from 5/4) to be President, with Haley out to 12/1 (from 7/1).
DeSantis remains at 50/1, but many pollsters believe the campaign from the Florida governor is all but over as he has little chance in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden shortened slightly to stay in office.
Betfred made him 9/4 last week and he’s now a 19/10 shot – the rationale being that with Trump looking clearer to being the Rep Nominee it is more likely Biden will be the candidate selected by the Democrats to try and stop him again, just like he did in controversial circumstances in 2020.
Betfred, who have been at the forefront of political punditry for over a decade, have Trump at 1/10 (from 1/6) for the Republican ticket, with Haley at 7/1 (from 11/2) and DeSantis the big outsider at 33/1.
