Who is Bill Weld?

Republican Icon

Bill Weld is a 73-year-old Republican who was the governor of Massachusetts from 1991-1997. He ran for vice president as an independent in 2016 on the Gary Johnson’s Libertarian Party ticket. Weld announced his 2020 Presidential campaign April 15, 2019 and became the first notable challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican nomination.

Voter Base

Weld attracts support almost exclusively from the Republican Party. As a Trump critic with libertarian-leaning ideology, Weld has voter support from third party members and Republicans displeased with Trump’s direction. As time goes on for his campaign, and Trump’s impeachment inquiry plays out, Weld could earn even more support before 2020.

Can I Bet On Bill Weld Now?

Only Bovada is currently offering odds on Bill Weld, which means that some folks somewhere are actually betting on the guy. And that means that you can, too.

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

Bill Weld’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

Unfortunately for Weld, he has little chance of winning the Republican nomination. Prediction markets, such as Predictwise, don’t even give the Trump-challenger predictions of success.

How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Bill Weld?

As of right now, Weld does not have any betting odds available, meaning an accurate prediction on winnings cannot be established.

  1. Some Republicans are disillusioned by Trump and with his possible impeachment, Weld would be a solid pick for such voters.
  2. Weld was the first real Republican to come out and challenge Trump in April 2019. His courage could be refreshing to voters.
  3. Weld previously ran as the Vice President on Gary Johnson’s 2016 Libertarian Party ticket, which could earn him votes with independent and third-party voters.
  4. Weld is pro-choice and supports gay marriage, which could earn him votes from Republicans that feel alienated by the far-right.
  5. Even as a Republican, Weld is not afraid to call out Trump. Weld gives a voice to Republican voters that want to remain in the party, but want Trump to be accountable for his actions.
