U.K.-based bookmaker Betfair gave longer odds for both candidates of securing such a landslide in the Electoral College: Trump is priced at 31-1, while Biden has odds of 16-1.

"In a tight race, either candidate running away with the election looks somewhat unlikely, although it's worth bearing in mind that under the Electoral College voting system, as few as a couple of hundred thousand votes in crucial states can turn a tight race into a landslide," said Betfair's Darren Hughes.

With just four days to go until Election Day, more than 80 million votes have already been cast.

The consistency with which the Democratic challenger has been ahead has led pundits to question whether a landslide Biden victory is a potential outcome. Many are wary, though, of relying on the pollsters, which pointed to Hillary Clinton winning the presidency last time around.

The Democrats taking Texas is one possible route to a landslide—and some believe Biden's party is in with a chance of doing so. A poll released published on Thursday suggested Trump could win support from 48 percent of Texan voters likely to vote, compared to Biden on 47 percent. The poll by the UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion had a 4.3-point margin of error.

GOP Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska has also warned of the potential for a crushing Democrat victory, warning of a "Republican bloodbath" during a town hall event this month.

The most recent landslide election, in which a candidate has taken at least 400 Electoral College votes, came in 1988 when George H. W. Bush secured 426 of the 539 on offer.

Four years earlier, incumbent Republican President Ronald Reagan defeated former Vice President Walter Mondale, taking 525 of the 539 Electoral College votes.

Reagan achieved a similar feat in 1980, when he took 489 Electoral College votes.

Barack Obama's 2008 election victory was the closest the U.S. has come to a landslide in the last two decades. He secured the backing from 365 of the Electoral College members.
