If You Were a Gambling Man
What are the odds? What are the odds that Donald Trump will be impeached or that he'll serve his full first term or that he might be re-elected to a second term?
The gaming houses are running these lines. Ladbrokes is offering even money on DJT completing his first term, 4/5 odds on impeachment and a 20 to 1 longshot on Trump winning the Nobel Peace Prize. If he is impeached the best odds, 2/1, are on 2017. If he survives 2017 Trump's odds improve.
The sports book, Monmouth Park, has the odds of Trump resigning during this first term at 11/8, a 42% chance.
Paddy Power has impeachment at 10/11 odds. The book offers side bets on what Trump would be impeached for. In descending order are tax evasion, treason, bribery and perjury.
