Who Is Joe Biden?

Democrat IconJoe Biden is a 76-year-old Democrat and career politician who served as Vice President under Obama from 2009 to 2017 and served 36 years as a United States Senator from Delaware.  He has enjoyed strong support from the Democratic voter base, and it will be interesting to see how he fares after some recent negative press.

Biden announced his run for the Presidency on April 25, 2019 and officially became a 2020 Presidential candidate. When Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race shortly after Super Tuesday, Biden became the presumptive nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in the November general election.

Will Joe Biden Pick A Female Vice President?

Joe Biden was VP for eight years under Barack Obama, and now he has the chance to choose the person who could potentially become the next Vice President of the United States (and, given his faltering health, the next President, too).

With the famous “Joe Biden eye” on a woman Vice President (he announced as much back in the early days of his campaign), it’s a good bet that he’ll stick with that pledge. The only question, of course, is who it will be.

While the Joe Biden VP pick might also be “transgender” according to the Biden campaign’s most recent announcement, there are no transgender politicians of national note to pick from. Thus, it seems a sure thing he’s going to nominate the first female Vice President since John McCain chose Sarah Palin in 2008.

For bettors, taking things one step further, there’s a strong chance Biden’s choice for VP will be a woman of color or other minority status. The Vice President odds boards seem to reflect that thinking with Kamala Harris being the heavy favorite. Though Amy Klobuchar continues to be the most sensible tactical choice (she could help Uncle Joe flip a couple of Rust Belt states), bettors currently favor Harris when it comes to the Joe Biden running mate odds.

Odds For Next Democrat Candidate To Quit The Race – Retrospective

Back when the DNC field was still thick with potential candidates, Creepy Joe Biden was sitting at the middle of the pack to be the next one to drop out. His campaign was considered on shakier ground that Mayor Pete’s, Mini Mike’s, and Crazy Bernie’s.

However, feeble as he might be, Biden is the last man standing. The odds below, from Bovada, are included for historical purposes so you can see just how deep a hole Biden’s campaign dug itself into – and then out of!

  • Tulsi Gabbard +225
  • Amy Klobuchar +250
  • Tom Steyer +250
  • Elizabeth Warren +900
  • Joe Biden +900
  • Pete Buttigieg +1500
  • Michael Bloomberg +2000
  • Bernie Sanders +10000

Odds For Joe Biden To Win The 2020 Presidential Election

Odds IconThe Joe Biden betting odds for directly facing Trump in 2020 are very high. Likely due to his high profile, Biden was given good chances by sportsbooks even before his official announcement to run for President. His experience as former Vice President under Barack Obama, as well as his long-held Senate seat, likely contributed to his favorable odds right out of the gate.

However, betting odds easily slide as scandals arise, such as several reports of inappropriately touching women and using his position as VP to profit his family’s business ventures overseas. As of yet, we haven’t really seen any of the negative press that he has experienced impact Biden’s chances of winning the 2020 Presidential election.

Update: Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, he will face off against Donald Trump in the 2020 general election. Biden has received the endorsements of nearly every other former candidate in the DNC race, including those of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Odds Of Joe Biden Winning The Democratic Nomination

Sportsbooks are favoring Biden with strong odds to win the Democratic nomination.  To earn favor for the party nomination, oddsmakers are not just comparing Biden to Trump, but to the entire field of potential Democratic candidates. With that field now evaporated and Biden alone remaining, he is the presumptive nominee, and Bovada’s Biden betting odds bear that out (for now):

US Presidential Election 2020 – Democratic Candidate

  • Joe Biden -700
  • Hillary Clinton +750
  • Andrew Cuomo +1800
  • Michelle Obama +3300

However, these odds will still change as his campaign develops. With his age and mental acumen often brought up among political pundits, some see the possibility that he could lose the nomination if another more notable Democrat who is younger or presents better policies steals the limelight.

Andrew Cuomo has risen on the odds boards due to this, and the DNC could still install a different candidate if Biden drops out of the race due to health or other issues.

Odds Of Biden Running On The General Ticket In 2020

While the Biden betting odds show that, right now, he has no party challengers, that doesn’t mean he will actually be on the general ticket come November. There has been a lot of talk about the DNC replacing him now that he ensured Bernie Sanders wouldn’t get the party nomination, with many pundits suggesting that this was the whole purpose behind his Presidential campaign.

Some offshore election betting sites are running with this narrative, and they’ve posted the following Joe Biden odds for bettors who also believe Uncle Creepy will either step down or be forced aside:

  • Joe Biden -800
  • Not Joe Biden +450

Biden Vs. Trump Odds

The real issue for most bettors – and voters – comes down to the odds of Joe Biden becoming President. In order to do that, he’ll have to beat Donald Trump, who is the heavy favorite to win the general election. Trump vs. Biden odds are available in head-to-head matchups at several offshore books, and each one gives Agent Orange a much better chance of winning. If you want to get in on the Trump-Biden betting odds, you can currently get the following lines:


  • Donald Trump -120
  • Joe Biden +130


  • Donald Trump -150
  • Joe Biden +120


  • Donald Trump -160
  • Joe Biden +100 (EVEN)

Trump Nicknames For Joe Biden

One of the ways that the Trump 2020 election will mirror his successful run in 2016 is in his use of frequent nicknames to characterize his opponents. Joe Biden, by far, has the most of them. Usually, a Trump nickname is limited to one per opponent (it’s a branding thing), but Biden just has so much baggage that his nickname should probably be Nickname Joe. These are the most popular:

  • Creepy Joe
  • Dementia Joe
  • Alzheimer’s Joe
  • Basement Joe
  • Sleepy Joe
  • Uncle Joe
  • Ukraine Joe
  • Burisma Biden

Joe Biden Coronavirus Update

Creepy Joe, Sleepy Joe, Uncle Joe, Dementia Joe – Whatever you want to call him, Surgin’ Joe might be just as apt. While his epic resurgence into the DNC driver’s seat was due largely to other establishment candidates dropping out before Super Tuesday and endorsing the former VP, the Joe Biden President odds have gone up with the growing presence of coronavirus in USA cities nationwide.

However, on the odds boards offering Trump-Biden odds, Biden is slipping of late. Despite the ongoing pandemic and the media’s relentless desire to blame the coronavirus on Donald Trump, the odds on Biden (which rose to eclipse Trump’s at one point) have now settled back into firm underdog territory, sitting at roughly +100 to +120 while The Donald is between -120 and -160 at most sites.

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

With favorable odds posted for Joe Biden, the current information details a suspicion by political betting sites and oddsmakers that Biden will likely earn his party’s nomination but lose the 2020 election against Trump. However, this is speculation by oddsmakers which can easily change on a weekly if not daily basis.

Betting odds can be an indication of the pulse of America and how they truly feel about Biden. Some political circles even consider betting odds to be a more clear indicator of a candidate’s public approval status since the odds are impacted by public money, and polls are very often skewed. The Biden 2020 odds aren’t great at the moment, but that just means that you should bet now to maximize your bankroll.
