Who Is Mike Pence?

Republican IconMike Pence is a 60-year-old Republican who is Vice President to the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump. While Pence has not announced a run for the 2020 Presidential seat, in the event that Trump is indicted or impeached before the upcoming election cycle, Pence would become the default choice for the Republican nomination. There can always be a possibility of a Presidential impeachment trial with any Presidency, as well as a potential for a Presidential Resignation – therefore, we decided to include Mike Pence as a potential candidate.

Voter Base

Voter Base IconAt this point, we are unsure of Mike Pence’s potential target voter since he has not announced an official run. The below voter base for Mike Pence is derived of pure speculation:

  • Disgruntled Trump Voters
  • Republican Conservatives
  • Republican Moderates
  • Trump Loyalists
  • Religious Right

Odds For Mike Pence To Win The 2020 Presidential Election

While Mike Pence’s 2020 Presidential election odds are not the best in comparison to announced Democratic candidates and the incumbent Republican President Donald Trump, Pence does not have the worst odds available and is considered a possible contender. With the impeachment inquiry established, and the possibility of Trump’s removal from office, Pence could become the POTUS by default.

Right now, Pence’s odds are more favorable than Democrats like Tulsi Gabbard and Julian Castro, proving that it is possible Pence would move from VP to President.

Odds IconOdds Of Mike Pence Winning The Republican Nomination

Mike Pence’s odds to win the Republican nomination are second to Donald Trump, but better than other Republican candidates who have expressed interest in challenging Trump. Depending on the impeachment inquiry’s outcome, Pence might earn the Republican nomination as the next best option for Trump loyalists.

Logically so, most sportsbooks list Pence with the best odds of earning the Republican nomination if Trump is removed from office, meaning the VP would likely beat out the likes of Bill Weld and Joe Walsh if it came down to it in 2020.

Can I Bet On Mike Pence Now?

Though Vice President Pence has not declared his candidacy for the 2020 US Presidential election, sportsbooks are offering lines to coincide with their Trump impeachment specials. Should Trump be impeached and then removed from office, Pence would become the de facto incumbent and could likely win the GOP Primary and/or the general election.

Because this is an unlikely contingency, Pence’s betting odds in both markets are fairly long, though they offer some good value for bettors who think Trump could be ousted before the 2020 elections actually get underway.

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

The current betting odds available through bookmakers show strong confidence in Pence as a Republican Presidential candidate to win the overall election in the event that Trump is unable to run again in 2020. Of course, Pence is still not listed ahead of Trump, who is still the President until further notice. Pence also sits behind a number of Democratic frontrunners, proving that even as the Republican nominee, Pence would have a tough road to the presidency. If Trump were to be indicted, impeached, or resign, then Pence’s odds would likely get better.

Mike Pence’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

As the Vice President under Donald Trump, it is not likely Pence will announce a run for the presidency. Nevertheless, after Trump, Pence has the second-best odds to earn the Republican nomination at 6% via the prediction market Predictwise.

In contrast, Trump has a 76% chance of earning the nomination again in 2020. If Trump is impeached, Pence’s chances via prediction markets would likely skyrocket.

A radio station in Rushville, Indiana also hired Pence to host a weekly 30-minute radio show called the Washington Update with Mike Pence. In 1992, Mike Pence began hosting a daily talk show called The Mike Pence Show, as well as, a Saturday show in Indianapolis.

Mike Pence’s Views On Gambling

Gambling IconMike Pence has often publicly said he is against the gambling industry. His actual stance is a little bit hard to nail down, however.  He has accepted over $2 million from gambling industry backers and gaming lobbyist firms. In March of 2013, Pence rejected gambling to grow the state’s economy and even went on through Congressional effort to outlaw online gambling.

Pence has said he’s never “bought a lottery ticket” due to his objections to gambling. However, in 2011, Pence’s campaign received $2.2 million from Indiana gaming operators and their lobbyist firms. Pence did sign legislation which provided gambling operators with lucrative tax cuts though we are not sure what else may have been included in the legislation that may have convinced him to support the measure. We have not studied the legislative measure to determine if there may have been other motivating factors. We are well aware that legislative approval does not always equal carte blanche support for all inclusions on a bill.


How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Mike Pence?

Betting on Pence is a tricky situation. The Vice President has not officially declared his intentions to run for the presidency and it is unlikely he will. However, oddsmakers still list Pence’s odd due to the possibility that Trump is impeached.

On Bovada, Pence has +1500 odds to win the Republican Party nomination and +8000 to win the presidential election. With $100 bets on each, returns would be $1,500 and $8,000, respectively. While these are great returns, it is not likely Pence will even be a real option come 2020.
