Biden’s reelection chances diminish after report

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Joe Biden’s odds on being reelected as president in November lengthened substantially following the release of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report into his handling of classified documents on Thursday, according to a leading bookmaker.

Hur, a Donald Trump appointee, decided not to charge Biden after the president’s cooperation, and he said there wasn’t enough evidence to establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. However, in a move that infuriated the White House, he cast doubt on Biden’s mental state, saying the president would present himself as “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” if taken to court.

On Thursday, before the report was released, U.K.-based bookmakers Betfair had the odds on Biden securing reelection at 2/1. However, this changed on Friday to 14/5. Newsweek contacted the White House press office by email at 5:30 a.m. ET on Saturday. This article will be updated if a spokesperson decides to comment.

Notably Donald Trump’s odds of winning in November increased only slightly after the report came out, indicating some believe Biden will be replaced by another Democratic candidate. Trump started with odds of securiing victory of 5/4, before the report was released on Thursday, which shortened slightly to 6/5, on Friday.
