IEM shows shift to 'rest of the field'
November 30, 2007 | Scripps NewsThere's some interesting wagering in the presidential contest, based on an Electronic Trading Market being conducted by the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA. The graphs show Rudy Giuliani as the odds-on favorite, leading Mitt Romney. But in recent weeks there has been a surge in betting on the "Rest of Field" pick, coinciding with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's rise in the polls. On the Democratic side, a vast majority of money remains on Hillary Clinton. But after stagnating over the summer, Barack Obama has started to regain some betting interest.
