US Election Betting
Whether it’s the controversy surrounding the Florida vote in 2000 or the dramatic and emotional victory of Barak Obama in 2008, the US election produces drama like no other.
Obama will be back up for re-election in 2012 and it once again promises to be a thrilling spectacle with some great US election odds available…
Obama could be in for a tougher fight than in 2008
After his election in 2008 Obama was quick to stress that the American public were in for a tough few years and that difficult decisions would have to be made.
It’s hard to imagine Obama predicted just how difficult some of his decisions would be though and just how hard it would be to get his policies through the United States Congress.
At present, the Republicans control the House of Representatives, while the Democrats control the Senate.
With the American middle classes feeling the squeeze of the economic downturn, the Republican Party will be campaigning hard on economic issues as they attempt to return to the White House following the defeat of John McCain in 2008.
It promises to be an extremely close race and the US election betting odds are looking more tempting than ever before.
The swing states offer some brilliant US Election betting
In Britain there are some constituencies that will always vote Labour and some that will always vote Conservative – and things are no different in America where there are plenty of states that are staunchly Republican or Democrat.
These aren’t the states where the battle for the White House will be won and lost though. The key areas are the ‘swing states’ where the electorate can go one of two ways.
In the 2008 election, Obama won key swing states like Ohio, Florida, Indiana and North Carolina, with the latter opting for the Democrat by just 14,177 votes.
US election betting on the swing states will undoubtedly offer up some big odds and the chance to win some big money.
