14-1 — those are the odds that Donald Trump will win the presidency, according to William Hill, leading British bookmaker.
One client in particular is rooting for The Donald to win with White House in 2016. He has placed 17 separate bets and, if Trump becomes president and the client wins each individual wager, he stands to win almost $70,000.
Those 14-1 odds are pretty surprising, considering how controversial this candidate is. William Hill executives are surprised as well; they had him as a long shot with 150-1 odds when they first started taking bets.
It seems almost every time the real estate tycoon opens his mouth, he has something outrageous to say. Despite his severe case of foot-in-mouth disease, a Trump presidency seems more realistic everyday as he continues to crush his GOP rivals in the polls.
He hasn’t locked in the win quite yet, according to William Hill’s reports of the other candidates’ odds. Hillary Clinton is the favorite, with even odds. Jeb Bush stands at 7-2, Marco Rubio at 7-1, Scott Walker at 10-1, and Bernie Sanders is just ahead of Trump with 12-1.
