LONDON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was back as favorite to win U.S. elections in online betting markets, according to Britain-based Smarkets Exchange, a reversal of fortune for President Donald Trump who was favorite overnight.
Smarkets is giving Biden a 56% chance to win the U.S. election, a massive flip from 29% an hour back.
The shift came after Biden overtook Trump in the battleground state of Wisconsin with an estimated 89% of the vote tallied so far. Trump has 49% and Biden has 49.3% of vote, according to Edison Research.
