Updated Weekly Odds: Clinton and Bush Extend Leads; Rubio Drops; Trump Still Hot; Kasich into Top 10; Warren Finally out of Top Ten

For the second week in a row, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush have reached all time highs.

Hillary Clinton increased from 44.9% to 46.6%.  She is nearly 33% ahead of Jeb Bush for the overall lead and and more than 43% ahead of her closest Democratic competitor.

Bush improved from 13.0% to 13.7%.  At the same time Marco Rubio dropped from 4.9% to 4.0%.  Over the last three weeks, these top two Republican candidates have moved in the opposite direction. As a result, Bush’s lead over Rubio has expanded from 6.9% to 9.8%.

Scott Walker and Bernie Sanders’s odds did not change and remained in 4th and 5th place at 3.5% and 3.1% respectively.

Donald Trump continued his hot streak.  He moved up from 8th place to 6th place overall at 2.2% jumping over Rand Paul and Joe Biden.

John Kasich seems to be picking up some momentum jumping from 12th place last week to 9th place this week.

Reality seems to have finally hit those betting on Elizabeth Warren.  She has constantly said she is not running but the odds, until this week, had consistently had her in the top 10. This week, Warren dropped from 9th to 12th.
