Obama drifts to 8/15 for second term as D-day looms
In May President Obama was as short as 2/5 to win back to back Presidential terms but as the stalemate continues he has drifted slightly to 8/15.
That said Obama is the odds on favourite to gain a second term at 8/15 with his nearest contender Rick Perry, who in the last few weeks has come in from 12/1 to 5/1 to become next President and 5/2 to win the Republican nomination.
"The American public do not seem to be blaming President Obama personally for the debt stalemate, but if it is not cleared up soon he could find his position becoming increasingly uncomfortable," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
