For the last few weeks, Scott Walker has been the hottest candidate. He is up from 11th 4 weeks ago and 9th 2 weeks ago to 4th place overall this week as he moved ahead of Chris Christie and Rand Paul. His odds have more than doubled in 3 weeks from 1.5% to 3.1%.
Jeb Bush continues to be the odds on favorite for the Republicans and had a big move up this week from 10.0% to 11.5%. He has a higher probability than the next three candidates combined (Rubio 4.5%, Walker 3.1%, Christie 3.1%). His money raising efforts have kicked into high gear especially since Mitt Romney left the race.
Hillary Clinton continues to be the odds on favorite at 38.0% (as much as the next 13 candidates combined!), but that is the lowest she has been at since November.
Paul Ryan has been drifting down and he is now at his lowest point dropping to 11th place behind Andrew Cuomo at just 1.3%. Ryan peaked in June 2014 in 4th place overall and at 3.9%.
Here is the updated odds by candidate:
