2012 US Presidential Election Winner Odds

2012 US Presidential Election Winner Odds Nothing like a little fun distraction from serious betting, one online sportsbook has already published the odds to win the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election. Even though we are years away from choosing the next President of the United States, the odds makers at the popular sports betting website Bodog Sports have already opened the betting lines on who stands the best chance to become the next President. So let's take a look at the future betting odds on the 2012 US elections:

 Depending on which news channel you prefer to watch, the current President, Barack Obama, is either doing a great job or has done nothing to help the people of this country. But the folks at Bodog Sports are standing firmly behind Barack Obama to win a re-election and spend four more years at the highest office in the USA. President Barack Obama is currently the top favorite to win the 2012 US Presidential Election with odds 10/11, granted he decides to run for re-election in two years. For those of you who have no idea how the odds work, this means that if one wagers $11 on Barack Obama and wins, the sportsbook will pay out just $10, strong odds in anyone's book.

 So, who's the top competitor against Barack Obama? Next in odds comes republican rival Mitt Romney, listed at 8/1 odds to win the 2012 Elections. The two were not able to battle face-to-face in 2008, since Romney failed to secure the GOP presidential nomination, but the bookies are putting the Detroit-born politician ahead of the rest of the possible GOP candidates in 2012. Again, we should underline the fact that these odds are not based on who will be running for President in 2012, rather than who has the best odds to win if they decide to run for the top office. The rest of the 30+ political figures on the betting sheet all have double digit odds or higher, so we can assume that according to Bodog Sports, the two horse race in the 2012 US Presidential Election will be between democrat Barack Obama and republican Mitt Romney. Where is John McCain? Out of the race with once of the longest betting odds - 125/1.

 Let's take a look at some of the more interesting figures present on the odds sheet of the sportsbook to win the 2012 Elections. Internet-favorite Ron Paul is currently sitting on long odds 60/1 to win, but doing much better than Rudy Giuliani with 80/1 odds. Sarah Palin is doing good with one of the best odds - 12/1 to become the next President of the United States. The other two women on the list include Hilary Clinton with 30/1 odds and long-shot Condaleeza Rice at 100/1 on becoming the next US President.
