Offshore bettors are spurning Christie

Betting people who put their money where their mouth is trash Chris Christie’s presidential chances.


Betting on elections is illegal in the United States, but not elsewhere.  Ladbrokes is a website that gives folks outside of the US the opportunity to place bets on a variety of events, including US elections.

Things are not looking good for our part-time Governor.

The current odds for Christie to be elected president are 50 to 1, the same as Elizabeth Warren and Mike Bloomberg, neither of whom are running.

Hillary has even odds.  Bernie’s are 12 to 1.  The most favored Republican is Jeb Bush at 3.5 to 1.

And as far as getting the GOP nomination, Christie is way down the list. Jeb Bush is at the top at 13 to 8.  Christie is in eighth place at 25 to 1.
