    Redskins Rule predicts the Election since 1940. Been said in the college football thread but here's the article.

    Redskins Rule:How football outcomes predict the presidential election - CSMonitor.com

    Ridiculous coincidence but 17-1 is hard to argue with. RG3 picked a bad time for a slump if your an Obama supporter.

    There are other indicators. I have a thread on it. The Redskins rule predicts Romney (though it may only predict the popular vote count), but there are three other indicators just as reliable predicting Obama.

    That'll make this interesting, as some good predictors are going to be wrong either way.
