The odds on Donald Trump winning the 2024 US Election have drifted to 13/5 from 9/4 after news broke that the former US President has been charged with attempting to overturn his 2020 election defeat in Georgia.
Trump remains the clear 4/9 favourite to win the Republican nomination. At 17/2, Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy are the most-likely challengers, with Ramaswamy 14/1 from 23/1 to win the election outright.
They are followed by 30/1 shot Tim Scott and Glenn Youngkin is 40/1. Joe Biden is the slight 9/5 favourite to win a second term and win the 2024 vote.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “A fourth criminal case in as many months has been brought against Donald Trump and punters betting on the 2024 US election winner have eased off supporting the former President, causing his odds to drift to 13/5 from 9/4, as Joe Biden increases his lead in the market as 9/5 favourite.
“In the absence of a strong challenger to the Republican nomination, punters view Trump as the clear favourite to win the party’s backing and he’s the strong 4/9 favourite to be the red name on the ballot, but will want to keep an eye on Vivek Ramaswamy, who is now 17/2 to win the nomination and 14/1 from 23/1 to win the election.”
