Henry David Thoreau said, "All voting is a sort of gaming, and betting naturally accompanies it."

Recent betting odds give former President Donald Trump a 63.87% of recapturing the White House. 26.88% are betting on President Joe Biden’s reelection with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at 9.25%.

Vegas knows.

Americans know.

Only left elites remain deluded denialists.

Historically, presidential betting odds early in election years have been remarkably prescient. They predict election outcomes well in advance without scientific polls.

American betting markets are particularly effective in landslide elections, successfully picking winners early.

The liberal media monopoly hasn’t broken Americans’ resilient spirit. Americans are poised to elect a leader embodying America’s soul and statistical preference.

Continuous legal attacks leave Trump’s campaign untarnished. Biden’s presidency has undermined American prosperity, safety and morality.

Even progressives are disenchanted.

Biden’s increasing litany of unnecessary restrictive laws counter our cherished dynamic and powerful America.

Trump promises to restore Americans’ need to thrive, making his win likely and necessary. Biden faces several problems.

Biden's anti-Trump lawfare attacks are backfiring.

The Biden administration, from its inception, actively targeted Trump.

Unsealed court documents purportedly reveal top Biden officials blatantly working to develop U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith’s case against Trump regarding alleged mishandling of classified material.

The Justice Department and National Archives contacted each other throughout 2021, undermining Biden’s non-involvement claims.

Such allegedly coordinated abuse of power should be impeachable.

Additionally, "Bidenomics" failures are piling up.

Biden’s latest gaffe-track claims 9% Inauguration Day inflation. It was 1.4%.

Gaslighting is all he has.

Checkout aisles harm people equally. His policies harm all of us.

Inflation levels not seen in decades make everyday essentials significantly pricier.

Gas prices hit record highs.

Stagnation and uncertainty persist.

Since January of 2021:

  • Overall prices rose 17%
  • Food prices increased 20%
  • Energy prices increased 32%
  • Rents increased 19%
  • Meanwhile . . . average weekly employee earnings decreased 4.5%

Americans are spending more for less. 23% of small businesses list inflation as their top worry. Biden oversaw the largest real disposable income decline in modern history.

This decline coupled with rising costs has squeezed the middle class and exacerbated economic inequality.

The national debt increased $4.7 trillion under Biden, burdening future generations with unsustainable debt.

Biden’s foreign policy has brought catastrophes.

Globally, we are disrespected and less safe.

Multiple war fronts loom.

His chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal emboldened adversaries China and Russia.

Taiwan appears more vulnerable than ever.

The Mideast is a tinder box.

Biden delisted the Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization despite their repeated attacks on our vessels in the Red Sea.

His reviving the horrendous Iran deal allowed the mullah theocrats to produce more highly enriched uranium.

Worse, Biden unfroze $6 billion in assets to Iran on the anniversary of 9/11. Skyrocketing foreign attacks on American troops and a significant ground war in Europe define Biden’s foreign policy.

China’s military buildup contrasts with our military emasculation.

Biden’s initial reluctance to provide Ukraine substantial military aid caused escalating Russian aggression.

His inconsistency strained NATO ally relationships, undermining collective security.

Public safety and immigration remain nightmarish issues.

Even one of every 100 illegal immigrants Biden intentionally let in voting could alter the election. One terrorist could kill millions.

Massive illegal immigrant influxes overwhelm U.S. Customs and Border Protection. USCBP has seized thousands of pounds of  methamphetamine, cocaine, and fentanyl.

Crime rates have surged in major cities.

Biden’s administration supported the defund the police movement, resulting in higher crime rates and slower response times.

The border has spiraled. We are unsafe.

Biden's inaction on anti-Israel violence created more anti-American and antisemitic chaos from the left.

Trump vows clear uncompromising law and order.

He prioritizes border security, curbing illegal immigration, and supporting law enforcement. His commitment to public safety reassures Americans.

Finally, liberal media bias continually ignores public sentiment.

Biden’s approval has plummeted. Americans hate his economy and foreign policy.

They fear his new public safety ethos.

Mainstream media collude to shield Biden from criticism, perpetuating narratives that obscure failures.

Analyzing Biden’s various problems offers stark contrasts. Biden’s attitude, rancor, policies and outcomes suck. Biden treats being worse than Jimmy Carter as praise.

Conversely, Trump stands for closing the border, enforcing record deportations, and ending catch-and-release. He aims to shift control over education back to states and end unconstitutional bans against religious activities in schools.

Trump’s foreign policy strives to end American dependence on China and reinvigorate our military. Trump stands for our Second Amendment, withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, and boosting domestic fossil fuel production.

Vegas betting odds aren’t just numbers.

They reflect widespread desire for change.

Americans are tired of economic hardship, global insecurity, and rising crime.

Americans crave a leader who can return prosperity and safety.

Trump’s vision remains rooted in principles that promise a brighter American future.

His focus includes economic revitalization, strengthening national security, restoring law and order, cutting taxes, reducing regulations, promoting American energy independence, securing the borders, stopping illegal immigration, and supporting law enforcement to ensure public safety.

Globally, Trump seeks to rebuild alliances, stand firm against adversaries, and restore America’s leadership position. His vision is a return to greatness grounded in American values of hard work, patriotism, and individual freedom.

The Vegas odds reflect that we Americans know who we must bet on.
