With Labour’s fortunes improving, odds on Ed Miliband being Prime Minister as Hillary Clinton is sworn in as the next US President on 20th January 2017 are 3/1.
A Labour minority government after the General Election is favourite at 17/10, with a Conservative minority government at 13/5. If he becomes the next Prime Minister, Miliband will need his government to survive some 640 days to see the next US President officially take office.
Clinton is the clear favourite at 1/1 to be the next US president, ahead of Republican rival Jeb Bush at 4/1. Controversial Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is 11/1, as is Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
Barack Obama’s defeated Republican challenger from 2012 Mitt Romney is 25/1 to win the 2016 race.
The nearest Democrat to Clinton is popular Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren at 18/1, even though she hasn’t announced her intention to run for the highest office as yet.
Alan Alger from Betway said: “The Conservatives have tried just about everything in the election campaign and yet Ed Miliband’s prospects of entering Number 10 continue to improve by the day. Even his personal approval rating is now within touching distance of David Cameron’s – unthinkable a short while ago.”
“Few expected the 2010 coalition to last, but we expect Miliband to hold the next government together to see Hillary Clinton anointed in early 2017.
