The election hype around the US presidential race is gaining momentum. Bookmakers named their favorites.
So, experts from the reputable British bookmaker William Hill have compiled their list of applicants.
The main favorite of the 2020 elections is the current head of state, Donald Trump, who put 2.2 to 1.
But his main competitor is not called Joe Biden at all (he goes third with a low coefficient of 9 to 1).
The second place is now being sent to 70-year-old Elizabeth Warren, who put 3 to 1. She is the US Senator from Massachusetts since 2013 and a member of the Democratic Party. Bookmakers believe that it is she who can get around Joe Biden during the primaries.
Unlike most politicians, Elizabeth Warren was born into a simple working-class family and started working as a waitress, but made a brilliant career, receiving a bachelor's degree in speech pathology and audiology from the University of Houston, as well as a master's degree in law from Rutgers University. She previously worked as a law professor at the law schools of Pennsylvania and Harvard Universities. Interestingly, until 1996, Elizabeth Warren was a member of the Republican Party.
Also, quite unexpectedly, the fourth-fourth place turned out to be a 44-year-old IT-related businessman of Japanese origin, Andrew Yang, who is put 21 to 1. He can also go to the polls from the Democrats.
Among potential favorites, 78-year-old Bernie Sanders is also considered. For the senator from Vermont (since 2007) this is not the first battle for the presidency. They put him on 26 to 1. In American politics, he is considered the вЂњleftmostвЂќ among the Democrats, although he is not nominated by the party.
The same bets are accepted for another unexpected candidate вЂ” 37-year-old Pete Buttigieg. This is a former U.S. Navy intelligence officer and mayor of South Bend (since 2012). He also goes to the polls from the Democrats. He is called the вЂњdevout ChristianвЂќ in the media.
Mark Zuckerberg, Chelsea Clinton, and Ivanka Trump were also included in the list of applicants for a вЂњjokeвЂќ.
