It turns out that the Russian were best at predicting who would win the U.S. presidential elections. According to research by Ipsos, only two other countries, or rather a majority of respective citizens, were giving Trump the thumps-up before the race for the White House had started. The rest of the world was convinced that Hillary Clinton would win.
The Mexicans were most convinced that Clinton would make it – understandably so. (Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish wishful thinking from sober realism.) Strange though, that the British who had witnessed the Brexit vote in June didn’t have a stronger foreboding that you indeed should never say never. The respondents were questioned in the month leading up to the presidential election on November 8, 2016.
