Suffer is right, the news cycle changes fast here. I don't when I heard he was behind with the suburban mums. Maybe he's gained. Although Boris/UK made the news cycle here today, more than once actually.

I think the riots are still going on but hardly covered on national news (CNN/FOX etc..) The local affiliates might be still covering it.

I got 4 sisters, they all hate Trump to varying degrees.
Just looking at the odds, and they don't look massively different to before, Joe still favourite, but tellingly one source of info states 80% of bets have been on donald to win, if true that's got to be a significant sign the feeling on the ground is trump will win. The first debate should tell us more, next wednesday, can't wait :cool: ...ahh just seen it's old chris wallace doing the questions, what a surprise :rolleyes: I've no doubt he'll manoeuvre things to help Joe and try to keep it slow.

Might as well bring out the cognitive test as he had a big interest in that before :p

80% of the bets but how much % of the actual money? In the end the odds will fluctuate because of the amount of money coming in not the amount of bets. 20% of the bets could easily be 60% of the money. But definitely more money has come in on Trump because Biden was a bigger favourite before.

If I'd bet on politics I would've put some money on Trump just because of the odds, you won't get a return over evens on a sitting president that often in the future I reckon ;)

I should have worded that differently, it said 80% of the money wagered, but that is a good point about the odds being tempting, normally they wouldn't be for a sitting pres.

So if 80% of the money is on Trump and yet the odds are still in favor of Biden the bookies seem to believe Trump will be beaten. Means absolutely nothing ofcourse, if I remember correctly in 2016 Trump was 10/1 during livebetting on election day :laugh:

For once we actually have a valid reason for discussing Trump as he's actively participating in nominating Ginsburg's successor!

Though one could see how the in-house appointments might grate with opposition parties, given that there should be a more level voting system, or failing that, a rotation of candidates erring towards their preferred political standing

For these always willing to check exchanges instead of betting sites who always count their own edges, manipulate odds little bit to make them more tempting etc... like at Betsson, Trump was favorite last week etc... They also do that own they own, some bookies might have got much more % of money to other candidate than some other bookie etc...

I guess most of money in this as well is at BF exchange, there people don't get their accounts limited and odds are based on money to be in balance instead of multiple different controlling things bookies use.

Wonder if judge is not going to be there before elections, it was democrats who during the Obama period got frustrated that have to listen other side as well and removed it that now it's much more simple if you have senate (don't want to start to express personal opinions of that great constitutional law which is almost old as bible, nobody not willing to renew it even little bit up to date and therefore it's really easy to read how you wish, rebublicans and democrats both have their own translation about it, is it still really court when decisions are so purely correlating with number of more judges from "correct" party?).
