Odds For Bernie Sanders To Win The 2020 Presidential Election

Out of the potential field of candidates running for the 2020 Presidency, Bernie Sanders holds competitive odds for challenging Trump. Out of all the candidates, Democratic and Republican, Sanders usually ranks among the best chances to win in 2020.

Sanders has experience running for President in 2016, as well as, his name-recognizability from said time which gives him an edge. Many Dems are touting his running policies from 2016 meaning his influence is greater than it seems.

Odds IconOdds Of Bernie Sanders Winning The Democratic Nomination

The odds for Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination are not far-fetched. With Sanders’s 2016 Presidential experience, he is more than likely to have a real chance at obtaining the party’s nomination. Sanders almost won the Democratic nomination in 2016, but fell short.

Now, gearing up for 2020, Sanders is still a top-level candidate, consistently polling high within the Democratic Party.

Bernie Sanders Coronavirus Update

Bernie Sanders has been absolutely crushed over the past two weeks, with Joe Biden surging ahead in the primary delegate count and favored in almost every state from here on out. However, thanks to the coronavirus tanking the stock market and suppressing Donald Trump’s betting odds across the board, Sanders is enjoying slightly better lines.

That said, he still trails Biden significantly and almost certainly has no path to the nomination, COVID-19 or not. Still, he began the week at +4000 odds to win the Presidency in November, and those have fallen to +2500 or so. Meanwhile, his Democratic nomination odds have also shortened to about +1800 (down from +2000 or so), but with this caveat: At Bovada, Hillary Clinton (+1600) has leapfrogged him, and she’s not even in the race!

Democrats overall are experiencing a betting bump thanks to the US coronavirus media hype, but Sanders – once again – seems to be the odd man out. For further information on how the panademic is affecting the elections see our dedicated page on Election odds impact of coronavirus in the USA.

Can I Bet On Bernie Sanders Now?

Yes, you can, and it seems like a very good risk at this point. While previously slipping in the polls to Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, a post-surgery Sanders has become energized, echoing the vigor of his 2016 run. With that new energy, his odds have shrunk and now have him as the leading favorite in the field of Democratic hopefuls.

If you think Bernie is going to get the Democrat nod this time around, now would be a very good time to put down some cash on the Vermont Senator. As the field narrows going into primary season, Sanders figures to be favored even more highly, with payouts shrinking for those who wait to place their wagers. Currently, you can also bet on Vice President odds for Bernie Sanders.

What The Current Betting Odds Tell Us About Sanders’s Chance Of Winning In 2020

The current odds imply that Bernie Sanders is considered an underdog to Donald Trump at outright winning the 2020 Presidential election. However, he has better chances at directly facing Trump after the primary pick than other Democratic candidates like Andrew Yang, Mike Bloomberg, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg. These odds may change as the field of candidates shrinks and campaigns fold.

Bernie Sanders’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

Sanders is a high-polling favorite in the Democratic Party. On prediction markets, particularly at Predictwise, Sanders consistently ranks in the party’s top tier. Currently, Sanders has a 34% chance of winning the Democratic nomination in 2020, which are the best chances in the entire field.
