Obama now favourite

Text settings

Even on Saturday afternoon, I couldn't find a bookmaker who made Barack Obama favourite to be the next us president. People's money was still on Hillary, suggesting Iowa was a minor setback. But after the recent debates, it seems Obama will take new Hampshire tomorrow - and Ladbrokes has changed its odds. It now has him cut, from 7/4, to 5/4 favourite with Hillary knocked off her broomstick on 9/4, from 6/4.
