  • Republican Ron DeSantis has taken over as the favorite in the 2024 US Presidential election odds
  • Bettors can access +300 odds on Florida Governor DeSantis
  • The last two Presidents, Donald Trump (+333) and Joe Biden (+525), are next in this betting market

Republicans have long been viewing Ron DeSantis as the heir apparent to Donald Trump as the next President of the USA. Lately, it’s looking as though the GOP is thinking about heir-ing on the side of caution.

As more revelations come forth about Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021 insurection at the Capitol Building, it appears as though the money behind the Republican party is ready to move on from Trump and toward Florida Governor DeSantis.

This fact of life is being reflected in the latest 2024 US Presidential election odds. For the first time, DeSantis is showing as the chalk in the betting odds. He’s at +300.

That puts him ever so slightly ahead of Trump (+333), who served in the White House from 2017-20. Democrat Joe Biden, the current President, is next in line at +525.

It’s important to keep in mind that Americans cannot bet on US politics markets. These markets are only open to bettors in other parts of the world.

At a betting line of +300, DeSantis is given an implied probability of victory of 25%. A $10 wager on him would bring a payout of $40 should he win the White House in the 2024 election.

DeSantis Making His Move

While Trump certainly is maintaining his level of popularity among his MAGA cult, time appears to be running out on his reign behind the scenes. The kingmakers who finance political parties are reported to be shifting their support from the aging, raging Trump to the 43-year-old DeSantis.

As well, the right-wing echo chamber also appears to be cozying up to the Florida Governor. Much of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is touting the benefits that DeSantis is bringing to their conservative movement.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to rant about how the 2020 election was stolen from him, even though all of the evidence proves he didn’t. As well, the majority of his close confidants have desperately tried to show him how this isn’t the case at all.

In DeSantis, the Republican power brokers see a slicker, more polished politician who can perhaps win back the moderates and undecided voters who abandoned Trump two years ago. At the same time, he’s just as willing to do the bidding of the Christian Evangelicals who look to be calling the shots for the party.

It’s Still Early Folks

It’s vital to remember that the 2024 US Presidential election is a long way off over the horizon. A lot of water is going to flow under the respective political bridges between now and then.

Currently, singer Bruce Springsteen (+4000), wrestler/actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (+5800), Fox broadcaster Tucker Carlson (+5800) and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (+9000) are all registering in the Presidential odds (What? No Kardashians?). News flash – none of them will be moving into the White House.

It’s doubtful that a Biden-Trump rematch will be in the cards but you know what might be fun? DeSantis vs California Governor Gavin Newsom (+4150). The left coast vs the right wing coast. In fact,  just this week, Newsom took out ads across Florida slamming DeSantis. The latter is running for re-election as Florida Governor in 2022.

If you’re looking to wager on the 2024 election right now, that Newsom price is offering plenty of value.
