When is the US presidential election?

The 2020 election is TODAY – Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

It is the 59th US presidential election, and comes after a turbulent few months for the nation with the coronavirus pandemic and George Floyd protests sweeping the country.

Former Vice President Joe Biden officially won the race to be the Democratic candidate on June 5, after storming to a number of influential victories in key states on Super Tuesday on March 3.

He is running against the incumbent Donald Trump in a hotly contested election which has seen the polls slide in Biden’s favour.

The winner of the 2020 presidential election will be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.

Who will be the next US president?

Here’s the US presidential election 2020 odds according to Oddschecker on November 3, 2020:

Donald Trump – 15/8

Bookmakers have put Republican Trump’s odds of winning the next election at 15/8, according to Oddschecker.

The website explains on Election Day that Donald Trump had “only a 20 per cent chance of winning in 2016; he has a 35 per cent chance in 2020.”

BetVictor is giving odds of 5/4 that Trump will “outright” continue as president.

Betfred is offering odds of 11/8 while Paddy Power puts the odds of Trump winning at 13/8 with Betfair giving odds of 15/8.

The 74-year-old has seen his popularity slide amid the coronavirus crisis as well as two bombshell reports from the New York Times claiming he failed to pay taxes and also holds a Chinese bank account.

There have also been ongoing racial justice protests following the killing of George Floyd.

His lead had slipped considerably despite polling high in the early stages of the pandemic.

But, Trump has climbed back up in the polls – particularly in the all-important swing states.

Trump won the US election with 306 pledged electoral votes but he received a smaller share of the popular vote compared to Hillary Clinton.

Joe Biden – 8/15

The former Democratic vice president is currently the favourite to take the White House at 8/15 after a surge in the polls.

But, that lead over his Republican rival has been narrowing as election day nears.

BetVictor puts the odds of a Biden victory at 8/13, while BetFred’s odds are set at 4/7.

Betway is offering 8/13 odds for Biden winning the White House race, while others such as Betfair are giving 4/7.

Biden has been praised for his ability to win over floating voters in working class areas, although he has been embarrassed by a number of high-profile gaffes on the campaign trail, including an ongoing investigation into his son Hunter‘s alleged dodgy foreign dealings.
