Anyone who bought Biden to win in the main markets or the many derivatives markets on November 5-7th is still in a losing position. The pro-Trump positions are uniformly priced higher for the last three weeks except for some small blips. For example, Biden rallied for a short time after GSA certification, but that bump has faded.

Imagine winning a big bet in a Trump casino in the old days and Trump just comes out from nowhere yelling "Fraud! Fraud! Fraud!" and he won't pay your bets and forges markers and cleans out your bank accounts.

I think some people here and elsewhere are politicizing this 2020 election betting/contest unnecessarily. In any contest or betting, there are winners and losers. Specifically, there are lousy winners or graceful winners, and there are sore losers or disgraced losers. For example, the Steelers can express empathy and grace toward its losing opponent, or conversely the Cowboys can disgracefully blame referees and unproven foul plays for its loss.

Now, letís get back to the main discussion in this thread here: The 2020 election betting/contest. Before us are two presidential candidates: Joe Biden and Donald Trump, and the result is Joe Biden is the apparent winner. Furthermore, as our country has witnessed for over 3 weeks now, Biden is a graceful apparent winner, and on the other side is an apparent sore/disgrace loser. Commenting on how winners and losers behave, and expressing congratulations and condolence to the winning/losing sides are not political statement as reflected in the title of this thread: WHEN POLITICS ISN'T POLITICS; IT'S GAMBLING. Therefore, in the spirit of betting or wagering, and in the context of gambling, I want to take this moment to congratulates those who bet on the graceful and honorable winner Joe Biden, and also to condole with those who bet on the disgraced and sore loser Donald J Trump.

Have the bets been paid yet? If so... Iíll accept your analysis. If not, then YOU declaring a winner and loser is definitely a political statement.

I never knew Ďcondoleí was a word! Thanks!

Just in: Fox News says twitter has flagged 100 Trump tweets and 0 Biden tweets in the last 14 days. Facebook labelled every single FB post made by Trump. Fox News blames big tech instead of Trump.

Top of the list twitter disclaimer on a Trump tweet this week: "This claim about election fraud is disputed" & "Multiple sources called this election differently"
