In the event that they square off in the 2024 presidential election, President Joe Biden has stated that he thinks he can defeat former President Donald Trump, but polling and betting odds depict a more nuanced picture.
During a lengthy interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday, the president addressed the subject and stated that he will take some time to think about whether to run again after the upcoming midterm elections.
The process of choosing the Democratic and Republican nominees won’t start until early 2024, despite the fact that both Biden and Trump have hinted they may run for president once again.
In 2020, Biden beat Trump, taking the popular vote and the Electoral College vote to win the presidency. Polls and betting markets, however, indicate that the former president might be in the lead.
Biden’s odds are currently lower than those of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is also a potential GOP nominee and currently has odds of 3/1, according to Paddy Power, who is currently giving him odds of 11/2 to win re-election in 2024.
According to Paddy Power’s oddsmakers, Trump has a 26.7 percent chance of winning and Biden has a 15.5 percent chance.
