Claim: The outcome of Washington Redskins home football games has correctly predicted the winner of every U.S. presidential election since 1936.
Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]
FOOTBALL + ELECTION
Did you know....??
The Washington Redskins have proved to be a time-tested election predictor. In the previous 15 elections, if the Washington Redskins have lost their last home game prior to the election, the incumbent party has lost the White House. When they have won, the incumbent has stayed in power.
This election year, that deciding game takes place on Sunday, October 31 ... vs. Green Bay.

Since 1936 the Redskins last home game before the election has determined who will win the Presidential election. This year if the Redskins win it means that Bush will remain in office. If they lose, Kerry will be elected. The game is on now. Anyone care to predict who the winner will be?
