Using recent results from the global fitting framework GAMBIT, I review the plausibility of the simplest thermal dark matter models in light of the latest observations. I will show results for the following models that feature popular dark matter candidates. The Standard Model of elementary particles (SM) augmented with a real spin zero, a Majorana fermion, or a vector boson gauge singlet particle coupling via the Higgs portal. The QCD axion, the KSVZ and DFSZ axion models and general axion-like particles. The Constrained Minimal Supersymmetric SM (MSSM), the Non-Universal Higgs Mass model (versions 1 and 2), a 4-dimensional MSSM with light electroweakinos, and the 7-dimensional MSSM.
