TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Current betting odds on the 2024 presidential election – which include candidates of all parties – are showing Gov. Ron DeSantis as the favorite to win.
The website FloridaBet.com gives DeSantis a +300, or effective 25% chance of winning the 2024 presidential election.
The top five candidates include DeSantis, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Mike Pence. Trump is close behind DeSantis in the betting odds, at +333. Biden is at +550, Harris at +1200, and Pence at +1400.
Florida Bet’s tracking of the betting odds began in February, with Trump and Biden taking an immediate first and second place lead with DeSantis in fourth, behind Harris. Through June, DeSantis’ odds have sharply increased, reaching their all-time high June 29th.
Trump has a 23.1% chance and Biden has a 15.4% chance, they report.
While DeSantis is a favorite in many metrics even with Trump as a choice for voters, he has repeatedly laughed off a presidential run as the media’s effort to divert from Democrat losses this Nov.
“I’m trying to think like, what is this obsession with 24? Like we don’t even have the 22 election,” DeSantis said in June. “I think it’s because the media knows that the Democrats are going to get hammered in 2022. They don’t want to talk about it.”
Trump, on the other hand, has floated a run since he left office.
“At the right time I’ll be saying what I want to do,” Trump said in the interview.
When asked about running with DeSantis as his vice presidential candidate, Trump said, “Well I get along with him.“
“I was very responsible for his success because I endorsed him and he went up like a rocket ship.”
