Even the Irish know what’s up:
Ireland’s largest bookmaker, Paddy Power, is today claiming that the Democratic Nomination race is well and truly over and are already paying out on Barack Obama to be the successful Democratic nominee.The early payout signals a massive EUR50,000 ($75,000) payday to lucky punters who backed Obama over the recent number of weeks at various odds ranging from 4/1 to 4/9.
The unexpected decision by the Irish bookmaking firm comes almost a week after the Iowa primary election and just a day before the New Hampshire primary election where Barack is now the odds on favourite at 1/12 to demolish his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
The New Hampshire numbers are in and Barack leads with 41%, Hilary is second with 28%, and Russell Simmon’s yoga buddy John Edwards had a solid 19%.
