Meghan Markle Might Run For President In The Next Election, Betting Aggregator Suggests
There's a little chance this might come to fruition; however, betting aggregator Oddschecker.com suggests the Duchess of Sussex might run for president in the next election. The former British royal is in the fifth spot in the most popular pick, which is hardly surprising given that there have been whisperings of a 2024 Presidential run for Meghan after she announced separation from the British monarchy.
Bettors believe this is highly likely to come to fruition. The former 'Suits' star is still an unlikely winner in the market, with odds of +10000, or 100/1. These odds are shorter than they seem given the circumstances, but bettors seem to believe that there is a good value in them as Meghan continues to garner noteworthy stake in the market as far as winning the 2024 Presidential Election is concerned.
Markle, who is married to Prince Harry is currently living in Los Angeles. Despite her odds jumping to a still long 1 in 100, Oddschecker claims there's a trend in her direction. The site's spokesman Pete Watt told Washington Examiner that her odds remain very high, meaning, a bet placed today of $10 is likely to win a whopping $1000, but if interest continues, it would spell disaster for oddsmakers.
Watt pointed out that the Oval Office has housed an actor in the past and has a television personality at the moment, but it would be interesting to see if it could have both at the same time, noting that "stranger things have happened." Meghan's odds places her among other popular contenders such as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, George Clooney, and Oprah Winfrey to be the 2024 winner in the presidential race.
Meghan was a star on American TV series Suits, which revolves around a fictional New York City law firm. She played Rachel Zane in the legal drama and departed the series after marrying Britain's Prince Harry. Despite working through the system for her British citizenship, she is still a U.S. citizen.
It takes years to qualify for British citizenship, even if you are married into royalty, so splitting from the royal family didn't affect her citizenship status.
Vice President Mike Pence is the current betting favorite for winning the 2024 presidential election. He is closely followed by Joe Biden, which suggests that political gamblers still think that Donald Trump is highly likely to win reelection this fall. According to US-Bookies.com, Trump has a 50.2 percent chance of winning, while Biden has a lower 41 percent chance to win.
