Ok this isn’t as scientific as an Ipsos/Mori poll, but traditional polls aren’t exactly doing very well, so why not listen to a goat?
I was, and still am sceptical about this animal’s psychic ability, but it chose Clinton to win, and that’s enough for me.
It turns out that Boots the goat is a professional psychic that predicts political outcomes.
The 3-year-old goat from Jedburgh, Scotland, beat many pundits by correctly asserting that the United Kingdom would vote to leave the European Union months ago.
This time around, Boots put on his signature hat and scarf and made his prediction for the U.S. presidential election.
In the next 24 hours we will know who will become the most powerful person in the world, and we at The London Economic are unashamedly anti-Trump, so an animal who agrees with us is a positive, no matter how weird it is.
A YouTube video shows him select Hillary Clinton as the next president by nibbling the card with her name on, which you can watch below.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
