Fox News host Tucker Carlson has 50/1 odds to win the 2024 presidential election, according to oddsmakers.
Although the 2024 election is still years away, many seem to already be wondering who could be next. Rumors began to circulate earlier in 2020 that Carlson will run, despite him repeatedly throwing cold water on the idea.
“Imagine a country where I’m considered a serious candidate for something, it’s just hard to imagine anything like that,” Carlson said during a podcast with The Interview in August.
Still, the the U.K. book Paddy Power has Carlson on the long list of potential 2024 presidential winners. Carlson’s odds translate to a 1.96% chance of winning, according to a sports gambling odds calculator.

Are his chances better or worse than what the oddsmakers are giving him?
