Wall Street believes Hillary Clinton will be the 45th president of the United States, and that makes investing ahead of the election a whole lot easier.

Clinton is viewed as having clear opinions that are far more consistent than those of her main rival, Republican front-runner Donald Trump. Strategists have targeted a group of sectors that they think will be most impacted both positively and negatively with Clinton in the White House.

Trump's behavior is a lot less predictable, and that makes investing on his views a lot trickier. One thing he has going for him should the GOP make an unexpected sweep, is that historically the stock market's performance is best when there's both a Republican president and Congress.
