Donald Trump is overwhelmingly backed to be re-elected in 2020 after he announced he would run again.
Even with a multitude of candidates offered by bookies, the 71-year-old is trumping the market with a total of 58 per cent of all bets on him to be re-elected in the last hour.
Odds have been cut on Trump reaffirming his position from 5/2 into 15/8, suggesting an implied 28 per cent chance of winning to a 34 per cent chance of re-election.
Elizabeth Warren (12/1) is second favourite to win, followed by Kamala Harris (14/1), Bernie Sanders (16/1) and Mike Pence (16/1).
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Whilst many of the world’s population await news of a Trump impeachment, punters reckon he is here to stay.
“This could be a case of having an emotional hedge, profiting if the President does manage to be elected for another term.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
