Online Gambling On US Politics' Uncertain Future

The Trump administration in the USA has been an unsettling experience for many who watch the political situation in that great country. Online gambling legality has been an issue for a number years in the States and now gamblers are turning to betting on the new president’s eventual demise which could be impeachment according to protesters. Protests are taking place around America and a poll is showing 40 percent of voters in the USA want him impeached. The site with the online petition to have the new president impeached has reported over a half a million signatures. Nixon White House Counsel John Dean said to the media “I don’t think Richard Nixon even comes close to the level of corruption we already know about Trump.”

There are many online gambling websites offering attractive odds that Trump will either be impeached or resign before his first term as president ends in 2020. Despite the odds facts prevail with the impeachment of a president only occurring twice in the history of the States with Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton and 1998, and both men were later acquitted by the Senate. Trump, however, enters office with the lowest favorability rating of any president since Harry Truman. Andrew Johnson was the first American president to be impeached, he was acquitted in the Senate by one vote.

Despite the long odds Trump remains most online gambling sites’ favorite for the next 2020 presidential election. Paddy Power and Bet365 have him as the 6-to-4 favorite, as no Democrats have yet emerged as a likely potential candidate. There are only a few US facing books, as online gambling remains controversial in America. One of the few companies, Bovada, is not offering any odds on a possible Trump impeachment, but is taking bets on Trump’s proposed wall between the U.S.A. and Mexico, with the odds favoring construction to begin after July 4, 2017, without a ribbon cutting ceremony.
