The 2016 election may have turned the polling world on its head, but one of the biggest losers was the political gambling world.

With the 2020 election on the horizon, some of those organizations are positioning themselves better by embracing the Trump phenomenon.

Bookmaking company Paddy Power takes bets on political scenarios in Ireland and the United Kingdom, and its head of public relations, Lee Price, shared with FOX Business' Cheryl Casone what the odds are the president gets reelected.
