Who Is Deval Patrick?

Democrat IconDeval Patrick is a 63-year-old Democrat that has spent the last few years in the private sector working as a managing director for Bain Capital. Prior to his tenure at Bain, Patrick served as the 71st Governor of Massachusetts, the first African-American to do so, from 2007 to 2015. Patrick officially launched his Presidential campaign on November 14, 2019.

Voter Base

Voter Base IconSince Patrick is very early in his run, his voter base is still speculatory. However, based on his policies and previous tenures in elected office, Patrick’s base could be groups from:

  • Wall Street Democrats
  • People of color
  • Civil rights activists
  • Centrists
  • Previous Obama voters

Odds For Deval Patrick To Win The 2020 Presidential Election

Odds IconUnfortunately for Patrick, his chances at winning are so long that no sportsbooks are even listing his odds on their sites. But as time passes and Patrick makes a better name for himself, oddsmakers are likely to list his POTUS chances.

Odds Of Deval Patrick Winning The Democratic Nomination

Like his nonexistent presidential odds, Patrick also lacks any Democratic nomination odds. Again, once voters become more familiar with Patrick, his numbers should increase. Once they do, this page will be updated to reflect that.

Can I Bet On Deval Patrick Now?

Since Patrick has no odds just yet, sportsbooks are not accepting action on his chances. As soon as they do, bets can be placed immediately as political betting odds are open year-round.  Bets placed on an event far ahead of when it takes place are referred to as Futures.

Futures bets often payout higher than wagers placed closer to an election because there is more risk involved. And while there is more risk, there is also less investment required as the increased risk is rewarded with a greater return.

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

Patrick’s lack of odds tells us that major sportsbooks have little faith in the former governor right now. Without any listed chances for the Democratic nomination or the US Presidency, Patrick’s shot at winning proves to be minuscule, if alive at all.

Patrick’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

Since Patrick is so new to the race, and he lacks the name recognition of his opponents, the prediction markets are not giving him much hope either. As of right now, Patrick has a 0% chance of winning the Democratic nomination, which effectively gives him no chance at the White House either.

For comparison, other low-ranking candidates include Cory Booker, Tulsi Gabbard, and Kamala Harris at 1%. Michael Bloomberg, another late addition to the race is even polling at 3% on PredictWise.

In His Own Words

For too long, Democrats have been telling people what they want to hear. I’m going to tell you what I believe. 


Deval Patrick’s Running Policies

Policy IconAccording to Patrick’s campaign website, he plans for “a health care system that provides access to high-quality, low-cost health services everywhere and for every single individual” as President.

Based on his policies as governor, Patrick will likely favor stricter gun laws for all Americans, a better system for immigration processing, and a promotion of greener energy alternatives. Patrick’s website also advocates for greater investments in education “from pre-k to community college.”

As for money, Patrick has accepted money from PACs but criticized “the explosion of dark money into elections.” He has also said that taxes should be higher on the wealthiest Americans, but he has not fully supported a wealth tax.

Deval Patrick’s Previous Policies

Policy IconWhile he was governor, Patrick advocated for casino gaming expansion in Massachusetts, which eventually led to multiple brick and mortar establishments opening within the state. Patrick also favored stricter gun control, including one firearm purchase per month and closing the gun show loophole.

As governor, Patrick also invested heavily into Massachusett’s school system and did work in trying to expand renewable energy projects. Patrick also favored same-sex marriage legalization in 2005.

Experience

Experience IconOver the years, Patrick has had a mix of private and public sector jobs. After passing the Bar exam in California, Patrick worked on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit for a year before joining the NACCP Legal Defense Fund in 1983.

In 1986, Patrick moved back to Massachusetts to work for Hill & Barlow in Boston. Working at the firm for eight years, President Bill Clinton nominated Patrick as the United States Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division in 1994. Patrick served in this role until 1997.

Patrick then joined Day, Berry & Howard, another Boston-based law firm, in 1997 before taking a job as general counsel for Texaco in 1999. Patrick was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2007 and served in that role until 2015. Patrick then returned to the private sector when he accepted the job of managing director at Bain Capital.

Education

Education IconPatrick became the first member of his family to attend college when he began his undergraduate study at Harvard. After graduating with his bachelor’s degree in English and American literature in 1978, Patrick took a year off to work for the United Nations in Africa. Upon his return to the United States, Patrick enrolled in Harvard Law and graduated cum laude with his Juris Doctor in 1982.

Civic Work

During his gap year between his bachelor’s and law school, Patrick spent a year working for the UN in Africa. While at Harvard Law, Patrick was elected president of the Harvard Law Legal Aid Bureau and defended underprivileged families in Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

Between April 1994 and January 1997, Patrick served as the United States Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division under President Bill Clinton.

Deval Patrick’s Views On Gambling

Gambling IconNot only does Patrick have a positive view of gambling, but the Harvard grad has even gone as far as to craft bills to expand gaming in his state.

Patrick was instrumental in bringing casino gambling to Massachusetts early in his governorship, arguing that casinos would generate tens of thousands of jobs and $2 billion for the state.

After a few delays and controversies, Patrick signed the legislation into law in December 2011. Plainridge Park Casino opened in 2015, followed by MGM Springfield in 2018 and Encore Boston Harbor in 2019.

How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Deval Patrick?

Technically, since no wagers can be made on Patrick right now, bets would pay out nothing. Once his odds are posted, as they’re expected to be in longshot territory, a $100 bet on a Patrick win could net as much as $20,000 or more.

Top 5 Reasons Patrick Has No Chance At The Presidency

  1. Patrick is entering the race extremely late and will need to make up a lot of ground in a matter of months.
  2. Limited name recognition is going to make it harder for voters to notice Patrick.
  3. Based on policy similarities, voters are more likely to gravitate towards more popular candidates like Joe Biden or Cory Booker compared to Patrick.
  4. Elizabeth Warren is also from Massachusetts while Bernie Sanders is from Vermont, two states that could help Patrick but are already holed up by leftist candidates.
  5. Even with other Democrats dropping out, the field remains crowded and Patrick just adds to that.
