2016 Republican & Democratic Running Mate Odds

The nominees for each party are all but decided (unless you disagree with our odds). So it’s time to start thinking about running mates.

Jon Stewart’s (brilliant) book, describes the Vice Presidency as a way to add someone to the ticket that is “geographically disparate” from the President. We don’t entirely disagree – except when you think back and wonder why winning Alaska was so important to John McCain…

In any event, we crunched some numbers and came up with the odds for who is most likely to be the Vice Presidential candidate for the Republican and Democratic party ticket.
