Updated Odds: Clinton and Bush Decline; Trump and Biden Continue Rise; Walker and Paul Continue to Struggle

Hillary Clinton may finally be seeing signs of the email scandal impacting her odds.  Her odds dropped from 47.5% to 46.2%, her lowest in a month.  She remains the easy odds on favorite.

Jeb Bush continued to be the strong number two although he has also been declining.  Her dropped from 13.1% to 12.8%, his lowest since mid July.

The candidate with all the buzz and for the last two month has been Donald Trump.  Once again he rose, this time from 3.3% to 4.6% which allowed him to leapfrog Bernie Sanders and Marco Rubio for 3rd place overall.

Despite dropping in the standings, both Sanders and Rubio actually improved their odds.  Sanders up to 3.7% from 3.6% which put him in 4th overall.  Rubio up to 3.5% from 3.4% putting him in 5th place.

Aside from Trump, the hottest (non)candidate has been Joe Biden.  He was up from 2.9% to 3.5%.  which allowed him to jump over Scott Walker for 6th place.  Over the last three weeks, Biden has more than doubled his odds as speculation about him running began.

Three weeks out from the first debate, Scott Walker and Rand Paul seem to be the biggest losers.  Walker drops again this week by 0.3% to 2.8%.  He has dropped from 4th place to 7th place since the debate.

Rand Paul dropped by 0.2% to 1.3%.  He has dropped from 6th place to 9th place since the debate.

Aside from Trump, the big gainers since the debate are John Kasich and Carly Fiorina.  Kasich has been up the last 6 weeks and is now in 8th place at 1.8%.  Fiorina  is now up to 12th place. She was in 24th place the week before the debate.
