In my latest #election 2016 update for @BetfairExchange; I make the case for a bet on outsider Dr Ben Carson and to keep an eye out for the emerging Carly Fiorina. Like Donald Trump, neither are politicians and therefore able to make capital from the groundswell of anti-Washington sentiment within GOP ranks. Unlike Trump, their strategy doesn’t involve insulting everybody else.
I’ve backed both at 66/1 for the Presidency, Carson for double the stake, in expectation of cashing out for profit in the near future. My instinct is that at least one of them, possibly both, will trade down to single figures for the nomination at some stage, at which time I’ll look to cover the position and lock in a profit.
As with all my positions throughout this long election campaign, keep an eye out for updated advice as the race progresses.
