Donald Trump is currently drawing the battle lines ahead of a monumental campaign to secure a second term as US president this November.
But it doesn’t appear as though we will have heard the last of Mr Trump should he lose the 2020 US election to the Democrats.
Indeed, recent politics betting data suggests punters are slowly backing Trump to run for the presidency in 2024, should he lose to his expected rival, Joe Biden.
Trump Wouldn’t Go Quietly
Trump appears determined to secure a second term as president and has ramped up his election rhetoric in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, an economic slump and mass protests across America.
But while his ‘base’ appears determined to stick with the businessman, the US election polls suggest Trump may end up a one-term president.
Biden – the expected Democrat nominee – has now shifted to an all-time low of 8/11 with Boylesports to move into the White House this winter.
Yet were Trump to fail in 2020 – with US politics odds suggesting a defeat is on the cards – then how likely is he to run four years down the line?
‘Trump For President 2024’
Bookies Ladbrokes handed Trump a starting price of 16/1 when they opened a market on the 2024 election winner in early June. Those odds have already widened to 20/1, while Mike Pence – Trump’s vice president – is in to 6/1 to win the next-but-one election.
Indeed, Pence is only narrowly behind Biden to win in 2024—an election that may see the Democrat running for a second term.
Yet Trump remains 10/1 to be the Republican nominee in 2024 and that price may well come in if he only narrowly loses this year’s election. It is the clearest indication yet that Trump won’t go quietly if he loses this year.
Ivanka Trump Odds
What’s more, if Trump doesn’t succeed in regaining four further years at the White House, then what are the chances of his daughter Ivanka stepping into the spotlight?
The US has enjoyed plenty of political dynasties, with the Clinton and Bush families holding centre stage in recent decades.
Ivanka already holds a position as senior advisor to her father and is active in White House politics. Her name is rarely far away from the headlines and she will likely be more prominent as this year’s election draws near.
The 38-year-old is 33/1 to win the 2024 US election, a price that has already drifted from 22/1. However, betting data shows almost 20% of all bets on this market have been placed on a Trump name, revealing punters, as well as bookmakers, are keeping an eye on the family.
