Betting Site Has Palin at 66 To 1 To Be Elected President For 2016;Chance To Make Some Good Money?

The Irish betting site "Paddy Power" has the odds up already for the winner of the 2016 election. 

Surprisingly they have Mitt Romney as the second favorite, after Paul Ryan at  9 to 2   Gamblers would be taking a punt for a very short time possibly, as if Romney is elected on the 6th then of course he stands the best chance of being elected in 2016, from the GOP anyway.

If however, he loses then in all probability it would be goodbye to your money as well, as Ann Romney has said that this would be his last campaign ever if he lost. On the other hand, what politicians say and do can be different things, but when a wife advises something perhaps that can be taken as read.

Palin at 66 to 1 is at long odds only Donald Trump's at 100 to 1 has longer but Palin has faced long odds and won all her life so nothing unusual for her there-who would have placed a bet at even 1000 to 1 on an obscure, Black, junior senator with a Muslim name to be president in 2004?

The highly respected political analyst "The V0temaster" at Electoral Vote.com had this to say and, given his record he may well be right about this one too.

"The two people with the longest odds are Sarah Palin (66 to 1) and Donald Trump (100 to 1). The astute bettor can no doubt make some money here"

Here is Paddy Power's betting table-only one thing is certain about it-the odds will change over time.
