Off all the predictors in a Presidential election, the "Washington Redskins Theory" may be the most accurate. In fact, the "Theory" has correctly predicted the winner 16 out of 17 times.
According to the "Theory" - If the Redskins win their final home game before the Presidential election, then the incumbent party will remain in the White House. If they lose, then the challenging party takes over.
Only once in the last 17 elections did the "Theory" prove false. Back in 2004 the Redskins lost their home game.....but President Bush was re-elected.
The Redskins lost 23-6 at home on Monday night to the Pittsburgh Steelers. If the "Theory" is correct, than Barack Obama will become the next President of the United States.
