Kanye West has been getting some serious backing to become US President with our traders left no choice but to cut his odds dramatically.
Having been chalked up at 100/1 initially, the Chicago rapper is now rated as an 80/1 chance following sustained support in the last 24 hours.
We took more individual wagers on West than on Biden and Trump over the same period.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Kanye’s surprisingly struck a chord with political punters, and the sheer volume of wagers placed on him means we’ve had to cut his odds.”
After recently announcing a ten-year clothing range deal with high-street retailers GAP, West may feel the Oval office is his next big ‘project’.
Ladbrokes latest betting:
US Election winner 2020
Joe Biden – 4/6
Donald Trump – 6/4
Hillary Clinton – 50/1
