There are just fewer than 800 days until the 2012 US Presidential Election on Tuesday 6th November 2012, but that hasn’t stopped Paddy Power from releasing odds on who will spend the next term as President of the United States of America.
Unsurprisingly, current President, Barack Obama, leads the way being listed at 8/11 to continue his spell in the White House. Other front runners include Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Hilary Clinton who are listed at 13/2, 12/1, 16/1 respectively. Should either of the latter two win then they would become the first female President of the United States.
The list of candidates was 48 names long and along with the favoured contenders were some less likely Presidential candidates. The most notable of these names were Paris Hilton, who was listed at 1000/1 and Will Smith, listed at 250/1. Former film star and Governor for the State of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, even made it in to the top 30 as he was listed at 50/1.
