Joe Biden is a 76-year-old Democrat who served as Vice President under Obama from 2009 to 2017. 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.
At this moment we can merely speculate Biden’s voter base, however, this information will be updated as soon as possible.
Joe Biden’s odds for directly facing Trump in 2020 are very high. Likely due to his high-profile, Biden was given good odds by sportsbooks. Biden has experience as Vice President serving as such for 8 consecutive years, this plus his name-recognizability has provided him with favorable odds. However, this can easily slide as scandals arise such as his habit of inappropriately touching females.
Sportsbooks are believing Biden will likely win the Democratic nomination ticket due to his high-profile name and experience. However, these odds can change as his campaign develops. He could also lose the nomination if another more notable Democrat who is younger or presents better policies steals the limelight away.
