Betting On President Biden’s State Of The Union Address

President Biden delivering a State of the Union in black and white

Tonight at 9 p.m., President Joe Biden will deliver what will likely be the final State of the Union Address of his first term. This address will be spoken to a nation now presented with the GOP and DNC Presidential candidates that will go head-to-head on the campaign trail between now and November 5th.

Biden must convince Americans that his current mental state makes him fit for another four years in office. For Donald Trump, legal troubles and support from Republican holdouts seem to be all that is standing in the way of recapturing the White House.

The SOTU gives Biden a captive audience, with coverage on most major news and broadcast networks. Online election betting sites are suggesting that the State of the Union will last between 65 and 69 minutes.

His Address from last February lasted 1 hour and 13 minutes. The official time of the speech will be from the first to the last word spoken.
