The 2016 Presidential election was a wild ride that eventually saw Donald Trump becoming President of the United States. Trump was a huge long shot to become President when he announced his bid, but he was able to gain support throughout his campaign and eventually become President after what most would agree was the most media frenzied Presidential Election lead up in history.
It’s now Election Day for the 2020 US Presidential Election and the hype and turnout for this election has outdone 2016. Donald Trump is running again in 2020 as the Republican Candidate, while Joe Biden is the Democratic Nominee. The Election has dominated the news in the United States with Trump and Biden going at each other through the media. This will be the most wagered on Election in United States history. If you’re a Canadian and you’d like to bet on who will become the next President of the United States here’s a step by step guide to how to get started.
