Las Vegas Odds makers are picking Obama in 2012 could they be wrong?

By Jim Campbell

Fortunately for the gambling casinos when they take bets, they wins either way.  Like the games and machines? Care to make a bet on the upcoming election of Obama? This is the place to legally do so.

When you leave with empty pockets you get a good understanding of why the places are so opulent.

This is the thinking in Las Vegas as of this date, and how it will be refuted.

Beyond which party will win the election, as well as the people who will receive nominations from their parties, online sports books are primarily focusing on who will win the election outright.

Most have listed at least ten different people to win the election, and only a few of the names are truly surprising. The whole thing is totally up in the air, but there is one clear favorite, Barack Obama.

Historically, only 12 presidents have served a single elected term, with only two of these in the last 50 years, it is likely that President Obama will once again win his re-election, especially due to his relatively high approval ratings.  On closer review the book-makers will understand that Obama’s approval ratings, like Obama are fraudulent.

Obama announced his bid for re-election on April 4th, 2011, and he received more than 10,000 online donations in the first 24 hours.

Barack Obama is running into the nominations as the incumbent, and this means that he will likely be re-elected. This implies that he also has a high chance of being chosen as the Democratic Nominee.

His approval ratings have remained fairly consistent over the years, and according to the odds, it is highly likely that he will win the 2012 U.S. Presidential election, at this time. It also doesn’t hurt that Osama Bin Laden was killed under Obama’s administration, unless it is proven that it was clearly a manufactured hoax.  O.K. it’s time to bring the bookies in for a reality check.

They are correct that there have been only two presidents serving a single term in the last 50 years.  But who were they? James Earl Carter, who is relieved to have Obama supersede him as the worst president in U.S. History; LBJ isn’t mentioned because he uttered the famous lines, “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your President.” Be clear, he was hated more at the time than President George W. Bush.
