Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, Ohio Governor John Kasich just received an endorsement from the largest newspaper in New England, the Boston Globe, this as his poll numbers have gone up in the Granite State.  His odds of winning the New Hampshire Primary were second (8/1) only to Trump, who is a huge 1/5 favorite of winning there.

Michael Bloomberg has Better Odds of Being US President Than Jeb Bush - The former New York City Mayor confirmed he will consider running for President of the United States by March but won't do so if Hillary Clinton is clearly going to secure the Democratic nomination or either Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio secure the Republican nomination by that time. 

Bloomberg was coming in at 20-1 odds at Sportsbook.  That's 6th shortest after Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.  Jeb Bush had odds of 40-1, his longest price yet.

Sanders Now Up 8 Percent in Iowa - Donald Trump holds a commanding lead in Iowa as Sen. Bernie Sanders takes control of the Democratic race in the critical first-in-the-nation voting state, according to a new CNN/ORC poll released Thursday.  However, the 8 point lead is amongst first time Caucus-goers whereas Hillary Clinton holds a 9—point lead over Sanders when considering past Caucus voters. Nearly 48 percent of likely Democratic caucus goers said they back Clinton for president while about 39 percent said they support Sanders.  This is according to Monmouth College/KBUR-AM survey released Thursday.

Clinton was a -240 favorite in Iowa, Sanders a +180 underdog that has terrific value with the potential to pay out $18 for every $10 bet if you lock the odds in now.
