The pro-Donald Trump newspaper bought by late GOP donor Shelden Adelson reported that the former president is polling in the New York mayors race.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal said Tuesday that while Trump is a "long-shot," they were curious about whether he had a chance in the New York City mayoral race.

Trump no longer lives in New York City, doesn't vote in New York and may not have been to New York for over a year. Still, the Trump-endorsing outlet noted that he has a 100-1 shot at the job, according to the Betfair sportsbook in the United Kingdom.

The paper noted that Trump discouraged his son Donald Trump Jr. from running for the race because "he wouldn't have a chance."

"Former Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is the clear favorite, at -149, to replace Democratic NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is barred from running for a third term by term limits," said the paper.
