WASHINGTON, D.C. – Cory Booker’s odds of winning the presidency were 66/1 in September. In October, they lengthened to 100/1.
According to US-Bookies.com, the New Jersey Democrat senator’s odds are now 150/1. Joe Biden is still on top with 11/2 odds; Booker also trailed Kamala Harris (80/1) who dropped out on the same day that the latest odds were released.
“In the early days of the campaign Harris was riding high in the betting, and political oddsmakers had her down as the leading Dem for a significant period of time. However, that faded like a whimper, and the fact that she dropped out as one of the rank outsiders in the debate tells its own story,” says US-Bookies betting industry analyst Alex Donohue. “It’s too early to say who this may benefit but the truth is she was so far behind at the point of exit that the news will do little to enhance the cause of any genuine front runner.”
Booker still hasn’t secured polling that’s good enough to qualify for the Democrats’ December debate.
