The line currently at the bookmakers on the Chumph being impeached before the end of his first term is 7/4. Pretty heavy odds with only 24 hours in office.
I am not sure that Impeachment is a legal necessity. I believe (but may be wrong), that the Election can be effectively annuled on a Court finding that he indeed accepted illegal monies and assistance from the Russians. This is all new territory here. But such an apprach would effectively make everything since the “election” null and void.
“Completely one-way traffic in betting.”
As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the next president of the United States today, bookmakers are currently offering odds on whether Trump—the least popular incoming president in four decades—will get impeached or be forced to resign. Some even predict that he won’t survive the first six months in office.
That’s according to the online betting site Paddy Power, which has placed the odds of Trump failing to complete his first term at 7 to 4. The odds of Trump getting impeached in the first six months stand at 4 to 1. Other offerings include bets on the inauguration itself and the future of his marriage to Melania Trump.
To be sure, political pundits are still reeling from one of the worst-predicted election results in recent memory, and the mechanisms to impeach a president are far more difficult than one might hope. Yet, Matt Shaddick, who oversees the popular betting site, told the Independent that there has been “completely one-way traffic” in betting trends against Trump’s survival in office.
