Redskins Win = Romney Wins!

According to Dylan Byers at ;"The game is over, and the "Redskins Rule" favors Mitt Romney.

Since the NFL's Redskins moved to Washington in 1937, the rule has held true: When the team won their pre-election home game, the candidate from the party that won the previous election's popular vote won the White House. When the Redskins lost, the candidate from that party lost.

It was true for Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940, when the Redskins beat the Steelers 37-10; it was true for then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008, when the Redskins lost to the Steelers by 23 to 6; and it was true for every election in between. It was even true in 2004, when George W. Bush secured re-election after the Redskins lost to the Packers -- because Al Gore had won the popular vote in 2000.

In today's game, the Redskins lost 21-13 against the Carolina Panthers. If the Redskins Rule holds true, Mitt Romney will win the election on Tuesday. This year also marks the seventh time Election Day has fallen on Nov. 6, for which the GOP record is an undefeated 6 and 0."

Thanks Mr Fabian for the tip
