The oddsmakers have made White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus the favorite to be ousted from US President Donald J. Trump’s cabinets amidst reports he is now on the firing line.
Priebus was coming in at 1-3 odds, chief strategist Steve Bannon at 2-1 odds, followed by Secretary of State Rex TIllerson at 6-1 odds.
Aides and advisers to the president told Axios that a major shakeup was anticipated in the West Wing.
"Things are happening, but it's very unclear the president's willing to pull that trigger," one top aide said.
Bannon was removed from the National Security Council last week, a move that stunned many political pundits.
Bannon is also locked in a heated battle with Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner.
Priebus is seen as someone having limited experience to help the White House run smoothly. He is also shouldering some of the blame for failing to get a health care bill backed by Congress.
