Bookies Pay Out Trump Bets Early
For those who missed it, here’s what the delegate race looks like after Super Tuesday:

“Since 1988, the candidate to clean up on Super Tuesday has always gone onto win their party’s nomination,” Ireland's largest bookmaker said in e-mailed statement on Wednesday. As Bloomberg notes, "gambling companies pay out early when they regard the result as a foregone conclusion, in part because it draws publicity and in part because gamblers often recycle winnings into other wagers."

Some cold water...

I understand that many of the upcoming states will be winner-take-all, and this puts Trump in the driver’s seat. But many analysts expected Trump to win 10 states (all but Cruz’s home state of Texas) and to create an insurmountable delegate lead. That didn’t happen; not only did Trump lose four states, but he came within three percentage points of losing an additional three states (Arkansas, Vermont, Virginia).
