The chances of a contested Republican U.S. presidential convention slid to their lowest in more than three weeks on Wednesday after Donald Trump swept to a critical victory in New York's primary, according to PredictIt, an online market for placing bets on U.S. and world politics.With Trump netting most of the state's 95 delegates and further solidifying his front-runner status, the probability of a contested, or brokered, Republican convention dropped to 50 percent Wednesday morning, down 2 points from Tuesday's closing level, according to data from PredictIt, which is run by Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand.
