Bet on It?

As usual, in America there is a market for just about everything. Do you think you know who will win the Republican nomination? Then you can bet on it!

For example, as I write this shares in Carly Fiorna are down two cents to 20 cents, continuing their recent slide. Looks like the shine of her debate performance has already worn off. The leader is Jeb Bush at 37 cents and Marco Rubio at 34 cents.

At least, that’s what people willing to put their money where their mouth is think.

Right now it is probably way too early to predict, but if I had to guess I’d say Rubio will win the nomination, and if not him probably Bush.

Either would lose to Clinton. Speaking of Clinton, she is currently at 65 cents, with Sanders at 33 cents and Biden at 30 cents.

    I do not know why Rubio is popular to be nominee. He has nothing to bring to table (except reiterating that these are dangerous times we live in)

    Although John Kasich/Rubio ticket can be somewhat challenging, as Republicans need Ohio, Florida and Latino vote.

    If past performance is any indication, then Diebold can help the GOP carry Ohio and Rick Scott Florida. The Latino vote, well, we will see how well that works out.

    We should keep in mind that, like any immigrant population, people already here with jobs are going to be unhappy with other people coming here to take them. It’s happened with pretty much every immigrant community since we started passing I’ve-got-mine-now-you-stay-out immigration laws, and even before then when competition was fierce.
