Donald Trump and his Democratic competitor Joe Biden need 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. Most states are inclined or solidly in favor of a candidate, but in some states, the race is very close to the point. According to the latest odds, Trump’s chances have dropped, but what does that mean for the presidential race in the US elections?
The U.S. presidential election has already started in earnest and Trump should normally have a huge advantage over his Democratic competitor Joe Biden.
The rules of social distance mean that your rival is limited to holding events at your home in Delaware.
Despite this, Trump started a series of rallies designed to demonstrate his base’s support and stimulate the spirit.
But so far, his rallies have shown a clear sign of growing unpopularity, experts say.

In the past two months, Trump’s approval ratings have dropped dramatically.
The US president has faced strong criticism for his response to the coronavirus pandemic and, in recent weeks, his reaction to anti-racist protests in the US after the death of George Floyd.
The USA has the highest number of cases in the world, more than one million cases ahead of Brazil, which has the second highest number of cases.
Most developed countries have started to track the number of cases, but the US is still reporting about 40,000 new cases a day.
According to data from the Financial Times poll, on June 26, Joe Biden is expected to win 307 votes at the polling station: 198 of them are solidly in his favor and 109 are in his favor.
Financial Times data shows that President Trump has 104 votes in the electoral college solidly in his favor.
There are 38 more favorable electoral faculties.
Overall, survey data reveals that there are 89 electoral colleges that are undecided and can reach both sides.
Trump’s chances of winning the 2020 election dropped to 8/13, according to Oddschecker, who is the lowest since March 25, 2019.
The US president’s chances have been steadily falling since mid-April, while Biden’s chances are going in the opposite direction.
On June 2, Biden overtook Trump to become the absolute favorite to be the President of the United States (POTUS).
Since then, the gap between Trump and Biden has continued to widen.
The shocking chart above shows Trump’s unlikely chances of becoming the next POTUS, which could make him the 11th U.S. president in history to fail to win a second term.
On Monday, June 29, Trump’s chances are 8/13, which is indicative of a 38.1% chance of victory.
Biden’s chances are 4/6, showing a 59.99% probability of success.
Callum Wilson, Oddschecker spokesman: “It has been a catastrophe after catastrophe for Donald Trump for the past few months, and although it takes a while, the feeling is finally turning against him.
“There are still question marks about Joe Biden, but Trump’s symbolic manipulation of the coronavirus pandemic has lost many of his previous supporters – some of whom are lifelong Republicans.”
