Clinton holds firm at 2/9 as the USA’s Election Day gets underway

| 08.11.2016

After months of campaigning, today is finally Election Day in America. The polls and odds have swung to and fro, but as American citizens wake up and cast their vote, Hillary Clinton’s chances of reaching the White House look strong.

The Democrat nominee has spent the last 48 hours as 2/9 favourite, with Donald Trump, once in at 7/4, maintaining a 10/3 outsider price in that time.

Since the FBI cleared Clinton in their investigation into her use of a private email server, the former Secretary of State has seen her odds shorten across a number of crucial markets.

The Democrats are now favourites to win both Florida and North Carolina, the former a particularly big blow to Trump’s hopes.

But the former Apprentice host is set to ensure a closely run Election, with the Republicans still favourites to claim Arizona and Ohio.

With a number of polls across the pond pointing towards a narrow Clinton win, the bookies are 11/8 that she achieves a Winning Vote Share Margin of 0-5 per cent.

A handful of polls however, have suggested Clinton may just scrape a win in the 5-10 per cent bracket, which can be backed at 5/2.

As for Trump, his best hopes lie in a 0-5 per cent victory at 11/2, although that price was as short as 3/1 less than a fortnight ago.

Clinton is 4/1 to win the Election by over 10 per cent, while Trump, once 5/1 for the same market, has drifted well out to 16s.

As for the Electoral College, a 310-329 result for Clinton is the most likely according to the odds at 11/4, with 330-349 next up at 5/1.

Trump’s shortest price here is 10/1 on a narrow 270-289.
