Mitch McConnell is 80 years old and has been the Senate Republican Leader since 2007. He will become the all time longest serving Party Leader in the Senate from either party if he holds the post for another year. Will he resign, die, or be ousted by his caucus before another presidential term?

In order to assess this market, I will consider some relevant factors:

  1. Age and health: Mitch McConnell, born in 1942, is currently 80 years old; by the next presidential inauguration in January 2025, he would be 82 years old. While this is relatively old, politicians often serve well into their 80s, and without specific health concerns or recent health issues, I will not heavily weigh age.

  2. Tenure and accomplishment: McConnell would become the all-time longest serving Party Leader in the Senate if he serves for another year. As he has established a significant legacy, this might make it more likely for him to step down, but this is not guaranteed.

  3. Political climate: If Republicans win the majority in the Senate in the 2022 midterms, McConnell may see an opportunity to further his political goals before retiring. Conversely, a Democratic majority could potentially accelerate his decision to resign or face ousting by his caucus.

Considering the above factors, McConnell's current age and the fact he could become the longest serving Party Leader in the Senate within a year could increase the likelihood of his retirement or potential ousting. However, the current probability of 49.81% seems balanced, considering the unclear political climate and lack of definite health reasons for McConnell to step down.

As my prediction does not significantly deviate from the current probability, I would choose not to place a bet on this market.
