I've said it before and I'll say it again: betting odds aren't necessarily a reflection of reality when it comes to gauging a chance of something happening. However, I do like them because they still provide some insight into what people are thinking. Betting odds can reflect a subjective opinion of a sportsbook's oddsmakers or they can reflect betting trends from Joe Public. Either way, they are food for thought even in matters involving Politics.

Wth Donald Trump winning the election in early November, many are lamenting the four years ahead. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has emerged as a major critic of Donald Trump's.

She has lambasted the president-elect's choice for cabinet posts with strong speeches that have served to increase her recognition as a political figure in the United States. In one memorable speech that Warren gave in mid-November she also depicted Trump's numerous hypocrisies as she sees Trump as being aligned with special-interest groups, the exact kind of government he campaigned against with his "Drain the Swamp" campaigning.

Elizabeth Warren increasing in fame

Warren (who has a more recent interview in another article I wrote) has actually emerged as the betting favorite to win the next presidency. It's fair to say that a lot can happen over the next four years, however she has made a name for herself as a strong critic of Trump's. For instance the video above has been viewed over 16,000,000 times.

That's an astonishing number and it suggests that she has a chance to further her political career upon a base of support. The presidency in the future is my no means out of the question in my view, making her a candidate to become the first American female president.

Betting odds on Warren 2020

Betway is the sportsbook that make Warren the favorite for the 2020 presidency. They price her at 5 to 2 against a large field of other politicians at this point. Tim Kaine is the 2nd favorite at 9 to 2 while other potential presidents have longer odds than that with their sports firm. Variance between sportsbooks definitely exists. For example, bet365 make Warren 14 to 1 for the 2020 presidency.

The Senator certainly has not backed away from tackling the president-elect's actions and, in my opinion, she is refreshing compared to Hillary Clinton. The loser of last month's election focused largely on non-issues, but instead focused on Trump's character, on Trump's allegations of sexual misconduct, and on perceived affiliations with Russia. Those are issues that voters care about, however Warren has spent a lot of time focusing on Trump's political appointments, his perceived allegiances to white supremacists, and his own brand of special-interest groups. There's a difference focus employed with Elizabeth Warren and it might make politics about politics once again.
