Punters go GAGA as OBAMA-TO-QUIT odds slashed!
William Hill have cut their odds about Barack Obama standing down or resigning before the next US Presidential Election from 20/1 to 16/1 following the mid-term elections.
'The results could have been worse, but they have done little to boost Mr Obama's standing' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'We have taken more cash for Lady Gaga to win the next Presidential Election than him!'
However, Hills still see Obama as the most likely winner next time round and quote him as Even money favourite to be re-elected, also offering 7/1 Mitt Romney; 14/1 Mitch Daniels; 14/1 Sarah Palin; 14/1 John Thune; 18/1 Mike Huckabee; 22/1 Hillary Clinton; 25/1 Newt Gingrich; 25/1 Tim Pawlenty; 33/1 Joe Biden. Lady Gaga remains a 500/1 outsider! '
Hills offer 1/10 that Mr Obama WILL stand again, 11/2 that he will not.
Hills had offered 1/12 about the Republicans capturing the House of Representatives, and 4/6 for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate.
