There are less than 20 days before the 2020 US election and early voting is well underway across the country.
The two lead candidates fighting it out to win the 2020 presidency are Democrat challenger Joe Biden and the current President of the United States, Republican Donald Trump.
Americans will go to the polls on Tuesday, November 3 2020, to elect their next President. The result will either mean a second term for Trump and another four years in the White House, or a victory for Biden and the Democrats after four years of Republican rule.
Trump and Biden are due to participate in a final televised debate this week, on Thursday October 22.
But with the end of their campaigns looming, who is in the lead to win according to the polls?
Who is the bookies’ favourite to win the US election?
Polls in the US show that Biden is currently in the lead, widening the gap between himself and Trump by between six and 13 points.
IBD/TIPP National polls show Biden six points in lead, with Trump trailing 50-44 and the University of South California Dornsife polls show Biden a full 13 points ahead of Trump at 54-41.
The bookies’ odds tell a similar story.
According to Oddschecker, Biden’s odds are currently at 4/9 meaning his chances of winning sits at 69.2%. Trump’s odds are 21/10, giving him a predicted 32.3% chance of winning. However, these figures do change regularly.
As always, it’s impossible to know for certain who will win the election and sometimes the polls do not correctly predict or signify who will eventually go on to claim victory.
