The only explanation of the betting markets is their lack of American involvement. This is a very good thing. We don’t want anyone affecting a political race by gaming the betting markets, which would be very easy to do.
Englishmen have a very hard time understanding American politics. To understand our politics, you must understand our people. Gun control is a good example. They have absolutely no idea how powerful the gun lobby is. They’re just ignorant.
I could have caught the odds on Cruz wining the Presidency at 66-1. They went to 50-1, and have only dropped to 25-1. After Saturday’s results, that’s absolutely ridiculous. Anyone who tells you they keep a close eye on the betting markets is a dope.
