The outcome of the last Washington Redskins home football game that is played just before the election seems to correctly predict who our next president will be and based on Sunday's game, Mitt Romney will be our next president!

This rule has held true for many years. According to, this Redskin Rule has proven true in every election since 1940, except for that of 2004. Here is how it works:

  • When the Redskins win, the incumbent party wins.
  • When the Redskins lose, the non-incumbent party wins.

The Redskins lost to the Carolina Panthers in their home game yesterday, November 4, 2012, so that means that the electoral vote for the White House should go to Mitt Romney.
