For those literally betting on Trump's impeachment - here's where the odds are:
Bottom Line: While gambling on many events in the United States isn't exactly legal. Off-shore sites continue to persist. The leading site that people gamble on American political events is "PredictIt". Now, it hasn't exactly proven to be "predictive" (bettors overwhelmingly lost money on last November's election cycle). That being said with so many in the irresponsible media fanning the flames of impeachment - we have this...
- 19% percent of bettors think Trump will not be president at the end of 2017 (compared to 23% yesterday)
- 16% percent think Trump will be impeached in 2017 (compared to 18% prior to yesterday)
- 37% think he won't make it through 2018
That's special isn't it? I especially like the 3% difference that either implies that the President will either meet his demise or will just decide to leave office. You really wonder what goes on with these people that are actually betting on this stuff?
