According to the newest numbers from bookies in the U.K., the odds of a first-term Trump impeachment have narrowed and are now approaching even on some sites.

I don’t know about anyone else, but this is good news to me.

U.S. bookies in Las Vegas are prohibited from betting on events other than sports.

Paddy Power currently has the odds of a first-term Trump impeachment at 2/1. Ladbrokes is much more pessimistic about Trump’s prospects and currently lists the odds that Trump will “leave office via impeachment or resignation before end of first term” at even. In addition, Ladbrokes lists the odds that Trump with “serve full term” in office at 4/5.

Bovada sees the odds Trump completes “a full term as POTUS” at near even as well. A $140 bet on a full term in office currently pays off $100, while a $100 bet that the term is cut short pays off $110.

Sadly, one must keep this in mind:

While smart money seems to be predicting an early departure for Trump, gamblers aren’t necessarily reliable when it comes to politics. Some of the same U.K. bookies had Hillary Clinton as the heavy favorite to win the election back in November.
