When would you say your chances are good at winning?

'New elections are coming up in a few months [in Goslar, Germany which became famous of recent by turning off streetlights after midnight in order to save money]. For financial reasons, Goslar will be consolidated with the neighboring town of Vienenburg. Junk [the incumbent Mayor] plans to run for mayor again. 

His chances are good -- so good, in fact, that the opposition has opted to not even field a candidate.'
Now those are good odds. Clearly.
