Weekly Odds: Clinton set to announce; Walker, O’Malley, Huckabee Up; Paul and Christie Down

Even with Hillary Clinton set to announce her candidacy on Sunday there was very little change at the top.  Clinton’s odds were up slightly to 39.4%.  This is the highest they have been since first week of January.

The top 10 remained the same although there was movement in the odds.

Scott Walker picked up ground on Jeb Bush as Walker improved by 0.1% to 4.0% while Bush dropped 0.2% to 11.7%.  There was a recent NH poll that showed Walker ahead of Bush in that state.  Bush and Walker remain in 2nd and 4th place respectively.

The other candidate to announce this week was Rand Paul.  The announcement did not help as he dropped 0.1% to 2.6%.  He remains in 5th overall slightly ahead of Elizabeth Warren.

Chris Christie continued his slide dropping to 2.2% from 2.3%.  He has now dropped in 10 straight weeks from 3.4% (4th at the time) to the current 7th place.  Let’s see if he’s able to make a comeback in the spring.

Martin O’Malley is set to announce whether he is running or not in May.  He moved up from 13th place to 11th place, jumping over Democratic rivals Andrew Cuomo and Kirsten Gillibrand.    He is now in 4th place for the Democratic nomination.

Mike Huckabee is up 5 places to 17th place.  Huckabee was in 26th place at the beginning of the year prior to announcing he would leave Fox to consider a run.
