From being wide-open when the nomination process began three weeks ago, if the betting is any guide, the race for the US presidency increasingly looks like a three-cornered contest.
Despite widespread concerns about her campaign, slippage in nationwide polls7 and the ongoing investigation into her e-mails, Hillary Clinton remains rock-solid, odds-on favourite to become the Next President at 1.87, which equates to a 53% chance.
A narrow, yet significant win in Saturday’s Nevada Caucus appears to have given her decisive momentum in the race for the Democrat Nomination, for which she is now a 1.18 (85%) chance. The former First Lady can now look forward to a string of wins in less competitive states, such as South Carolina on Saturday.
Clinton is virtually unbackable in SC at the minimum odds of 1.01 (99%), and there will be several similar heats on March 1st. After that Super Tuesday extravaganza, every indicator points towards her amassing a huge delegate lead over Bernie Sanders.
