The odds that former President Donald Trump will win back the White House have hit a new high, likely driven by the historic trial he is facing and the building list of failures facing President Joe Biden.

For the first time, Sports Handle, which aggregates political betting odds, said Trump has a 57.2% chance of winning the November election.

By comparison, Biden’s odds of reelection have fallen to 40.9%, down from 47.1% at the end of April.

In the last month, the gap has grown from 1 point to 16.3 points.
