Going into Tuesday's election, pretty much all the polls turned out to be wrong. In a surprise upset, Donald Trump won Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania to win a majority of votes in the electoral college. The election was very close, with Hillary Clinton winning the nationwide popular vote.
The pollsters may have been wrong, but one demographic saw it coming - psychic animals. On Monday, Huffington Post reported that psychic animals around the world had picked Trump to win.
Various people around the world have attempted to predict the election results by asking animal oracles for their input.
The Shiyanhu Ecological Tourism Park in China’s Hunan province recently had Geda, a simian seer known for accurately predicting the winners of European soccer matches, take a stab at political forecasting, according to The Washington Post.
The monkey, whose name means “goose bumps,” was presented with life-size cutouts of Trump and Hillary Clinton. Geda not only chose Trump ― he climbed onto the cutout to give the man a kiss.
The article includes more examples of trials involving psychic animals, all of which came out in Trump's favor. So here's the question - are these animals really psychic? Some have shown seemingly remarkable abilities to make predictions, beyond what chance would expect. British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has done some interesting experiments with psychic pets, though few mainstream scientists accept his results.
And here's another - will Trump turn out to be the president who embraces the support of these psychic animals and genuinely cares about their issues? I mean, I don't know what those are, but they must want something, right?
