2020 US Presidential Odds
Donald Trump’s first year and a half in office has been, by virtually any metric, a complete and utter disaster. The POTUS has attacked the intelligence community, undermined relationships with America’s longest-standing allies, endorsed alleged sex predators, and overseen the forcible separation of children from their families.
Despite his many scathing scandals and controversies, Trump somehow remains the overwhelming favoite to win the next US Presidential election in 2020. The Donald’s current average odds of +110 are 990 points better than his next closest competitor. That isn’t just a gap – it’s yawning chasm – and it could get even wider unless something changes soon.
- March 25, 2019: The Mueller Report is out and Donald Trump appears to have emerged unscathed… so far. The POTUS saw his odds improve from +110 to +100.
- January 22, 2019: Is Donald Trump’s government shutdown shutting him down from re-election as President of the United States in 2020? It certainly seems that way as his odds have lengthened from +120 to +180.
- January 10, 2019: Don’t look now, but Elizabeth Warren has emerged as a bona fide presidential candidate. Her odds improved significantly from +2300 on December 14th to +1700 on January 10th.
- November 7, 2018: Trump’s odds to win the 2020 Presidential Election jumped from +100 to +110 hours after the Republicans lost the House of Representatives in the US Midterm Elections.
- October 31, 2018: Halloween may be a scary time for some, but not for Trump, whose odds of serving a second term have shortened from +110 to +100 despite rampant speculation the Republicans will lose the House of Representatives in the upcoming Midterms.
- October 15, 2018: Donald Trump remains the heavy favorite to win the 2020 Presidential Election with odds of +110. His next closest competitor, Kamala Harris, is still far back at +1000.

2020 US Presidential Election Winning Party Odds
This two-horse race is still far too close to call, but the Democrats are starting to separate themselves from the Repuplicans in 2019.
Odds for Past US Presidential Candidates
Hillary Clinton made the wrong kind of history in 2016 when she became just the fifth US Presidential candidate to lose the election despite winning the popular vote. The former First Lady received nearly three million more popular votes than Trump, but carried ten fewer states and garnered 77 fewer electoral votes.
US Presidential Odds for Entrepreneurial Candidates
Trump might not be the only entrepreneur in the 2020 US Presidential Election. Media magnate Oprah Winfrey, former Starbucks head honcho Howard Schultz, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has all expressed varying degrees of interest in running for office.
- Eight businessmen have gone on to become US President. They include Warren G. Harding (newspaper publisher), Calvin Coolidge (bank VP), Herbert Hoover (mining executive), Harry Truman (haberdasher), Jimmy Carter (peanut farmer), George H.W. Bush (oil executive), George W. Bush (baseball team co-owner), and Donald Trump (real estate tycoon)
- Five US Presidents had never been elected to public office before entering the White House
- Donald Trump is the only President who had never served in the military, elected public office, or government before becoming POTUS
US Presidential Odds for Celebrity Candidates
Millennials may find this hard to believe, but Trump isn’t America’s first celebrity president. That honor belongs to Ronald Reagan, who starred in 80 films and television productions from 1937 to 1965. The “Great Communicator” was best known for roles like George Gipp in Knute Rockne, All American, and Jack Browning in The Killers.
The current crop of celebrities with political aspirations is highlighted by Oprah Winfrey, who has impressive clout and a net worth of $2.9 billion, and Dwayne Johnson, who confirmed he’s strongly considering a presidential run as recently as July. Both celebs have the resources and star power to drum up a ton of support at the polls.
States that Have Produced the Most US Presidents
Four of America’s first five presidents called Virginia home, but don’t expect that trend to continue in 2020. The “Old Dominion” hasn’t produced a sitting president since 1913 when Woodrow Wilson entered the Oval Office.
