A sharp rise in the number of bets placed on George Clooney becoming the 46th President of the United States of America has been reported by bookmakers.
The Hollywood A-lister is now just 20/1 (from 50/1) to win the Democrat nomination for the 2020 election, with the leading online bookmaker accepting a surge of bets following Clooney’s reported donation to the gun-rights march being held next month.
Clooney’s odds of replacing Donald Trump as the States’ next leader have also plummeted from 100/1 to 50/1, not much bigger than the 25/1 initially offered in 2015 on Trump winning the last election.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “The big news from our political betting offices is that bets are flying in for George Clooney to run for President!
“A recent and considerable donation to next month’s gun-rights march has triggered speculation of the actor running for the Whitehouse and we’ve had to cut his odds of both winning the Democrat nominee to 20/1 and he’s now 50/1 from 100/1 to be the 46th President.”
