Tuesday's HOT MIC

Tuesday's HOT MIC

The end of the Republic draws ever closer:

While he's already a historically unpopular leader of the free world, though, [Trump]'s still the favorite to win the presidency come the next presidential election cycle, according to the latest odds from Bovada.lv, an online gambling site. He's got 9/4 odds—meaning if you placed a $100 bet Monday and Trump won in 2020, you'd win $325—the best of any listed candidate. Vice President Mike Pence also has relatively good odds, at 9/1, seeming to suggest that the oddsmaker believes Trump might not finish his term and that his No. 2 could parlay the opportunity into another term. In fact, Bovada gives 2017 2/1 odds as the exit year for the president.

Outside of Trump, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has the best odds to win in 2020, at 15/2. Most of the top candidates come from the world of traditional politics, including familiar names such as Michelle Obama (who has said she won't run) at 15/1, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at 20/1 and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan at 25/1.
