President Donald Trump is a 3-2 favorite to win the 2020 presidential election, with his odds unchanged following Sen. Bernie Sanders' official bid announcement, says sportsbook brand manager Dave Mason of BetOnline.ag.
"There were no changes to Sanders' odds following the announcement," Mason said. "We had it as a foregone conclusion that he will be in the Democratic mix."
Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., raised $4 million in less than 12 hours after saying he would run for the second straight time as a Democrat.
Twelve lawmakers have entered the race as Democrats, including Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is also running.
Harris sits behind Trump in the bet count at 8-1 odds and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, is third with 10-1 odds. Former Vice President Joe Biden is fourth at 12-1 odds and Sanders fifth at 14-1.
O'Rourke and Biden have yet to announce a presidential bid but have hinted at entering the race.
O'Rourke lost to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in deep-red Texas last November by just 2.6 percentage points.
Harris is showing 8-1 at the moment, while Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is 80-1.
