US Presidential Election Odds: Kamala Harris 2/1 to win election

Following confirmation from Joe Biden that he will step out of the presidential race, Kamala Harris has been cut to 2/1 to win the presidential election.

Politics

There had long been concerns around Biden's age, mental acuity and overall fitness to be president, but those concerns were heightened after the first TV debate, in which the president made a number of incoherent remarks, prompting fears within the Democratic party around Biden's suitability.

The debate was widely viewed as a sorry affair; Trump resorted to his typically inflammatory rhetoric which didn't stand up to fact-checking scrutiny, while Biden was unable to land any significant blows on his opponent. Both men descended to name-calling and insults, with a debate around each other's golf handicap about as heated as things got.

Although Biden since insisted he'd be running for president again, questions arose once more following more recent errors, first around Volodymyr Zelenskyy who he referred to as 'President Putin', and then saying: "Look I wouldn't have picked Vice-President Trump to be vice-president if she was not qualified to be president," confusing his presidential rival with current vice-president Kamala Harris.

The latest concern arose when the president was diagnosed with Covid, prompting the cancellation of an event.

Interestingly now, the Republicans' attack line that Biden is too old to be president could be turned back on them. Trump himself has often confused names, including that of running mate JD Vance, and with the former president at the age of 78, the much more energetic Harris, nearly 20 years his junior, may look to showcase his lack of suitability for office.

The Democrats are 13/8 to win the election, with Harris 1/9 to be the next Democratic candidate and 2/1 to win the election.
