Prediction Markets Indicate Trump as Runaway Favorite in April Primaries

More evidence that Donald Trump is the Republican candidate who will pose the most serious challenge to the Democrats continues to trickle in.

According to PredictIt, a project that brings universities across the country together in guessing the chances of candidates of winning, Trump is the most likely to win primary elections this coming April. His chances are so good apparently that only came in second place in one state, Wisconsin, where he closely trailed Ted Cruz.

The researchers reached this conclusion by examining the political prediction market, which is characterized as the “stock market of politics.” In contrast to many methods used to foretell election results, the prediction market is actually fairly accurate, with it often leaving political polls and pundits in the dust.

The project’s predictions will no doubt be a great source of excitement to the Trump campaign and a major disappointment to the Cruz campaign, which has tried to market itself as the only viable alternative to Trump.
