Warren Buffett deviated from business predictions at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit on Tuesday to make a political forecast: "Hillary is going to win."
The Oracle of Omaha is a known supporter of both Clinton and President Obama. He reportedly backed Clinton's 2008 campaign and has donated to and helped fundraise for Obama. Buffett also showed his support for Clinton in one of his five tweets since joining Twitter in May 2013:
Hello @Hillaryclinton! Happy to welcome one of my favorite women in the world to twitter. #45— Warren Buffett (@WarrenBuffett) June 10, 2013
How sure is the billionaire investor of his hunch? "I will bet money on it," Buffett said. "I don't do that easily."
