If you are one of the tens of thousands of people around the world who placed bets on the 2020 Presidential Election between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden you might be wondering why you have not yet been paid. Well, the simple answer is that neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden has yet been declared the winner according to the people who run the sites.
Take that MSM.
I know this should not be shocking to someone who loves to travel to Vegas but you can bet on almost anything these days. When I found out about a week before this year’s Nov 3rd election that you could bet on even who would be the next leader of the free world I was a bit shocked, although it is 2020 so anything goes.
According to the New York Post this is a really big thing.
President Trump is not the only one who adamantly refuses to credit Joe Biden with winning the 2020 presidential election.
Honchos at online gambling sites around the world, which take wagers on election outcomes, are also refusing to call Biden president-elect, despite the final tallies in his favor in what’s been called a historically secure election. Now, millions of dollars in gamblers’ wins and losses hang in the balance.
At one site alone, London-based Betfair, nearly $600 million in presidential wagers are hanging tight.
“People who bet Trump say it is not over. People who bet Biden say it is. This makes for a tricky situation where we have to be sure. It’s not like a football game” in terms of there being a clear-cut victor, Burns said.
SIX HUNDRED MILLION!?!?!?!?
That is a mindboggling amount of money bet on an elected office and makes you wonder if there might be some more incentive to do some hanky panky around the ballot box to win more than just a 4-year term.
That the bookies are hesitant to pull the trigger then we definitely need to hold off on declaring a winner even though ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX News have called it. I know some might quibble why I didn’t include MSNBC in there but why would I? Plus NBC is lucky I gave them the courtesy of being in that sentence.
I know that people are growing tired of the lawsuits winding their way through the courts but this is really the beautiful part of the republic we live in. We are supposed to settle these things peacefully and not the way that Bien supporters want by throwing bricks. Also, just imagine how anyone would feel if you were a Biden supporter and you’re thinking that Muppet of a Trojan Horse candidate of yours had won AND you placed money on him to win also. They must be FURIOUS to have not been paid off yet even though the Fox Decision Desk has called the race.
Just imagine now if the race gets called for Donald Trump how those people will feel.
Let those warm vibes roll over you and enjoy it for a moment.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
