Bad news…..Trump is definitely going to win. :(
You’ve probably heard of the Washington Football Team rule before. It states that:
If the Redskins win their last home game before the election, the party that won the previous election wins the next election and that if the Redskins lose, the challenging party’s candidate wins.
This has held true in 17 of the last 19 elections. However, it’s only 1 for 3 in the last three elections. Not a great track record.
From 1948 through 2008, if:
1. The Phillies win less than 92.
2. The Indians win less than 97 games.
3. The Red Sox win at least 75 games.
The Republican candidate has won the election every single time. However, this method predicted that Romney would win in 2012, which did not end up happening.
So what does this say about the presidency this year?
The Phillies are currently sitting at 65 wins with only 16 left to play, the Indians are at 84 wins with 15 left to play, and the Red Sox are already at 81 wins. Check, almost surely check, and check.
The only chance the Clinton now has to win the election is to pray that Cleveland goes 13-2 or better in their remaining 15 games. This is doubly odd as Cleveland, host city of the 2016 Republican National Convention, is once again at the center of the political world.
With the new findings Trump and his team are allegedly concerned that the Clinton campaign will be fixing Cleveland Indians games from now until the end of the season in spite of the fact that no evidence of game tampering has been found since 1919. Nevertheless, Trump’s team has encouraged his supporters to attend Cleveland games and watch diligently to make sure there is no fraud happening. Further, Republican lawmakers are encouraging baseball’s commissioner, Rob Manfred, and the front office of the Cleveland Indians to institute stricter ticketing policies. These lawmakers want to prevent fans from attending games unless they have their ticket and at least two forms of government ID to present at the time of entrance to the stadium. They argue this it to prevent fans from attending both halves of a double header with only one ticket. Democratic lawmakers believe this is just a thinly veiled attempt to keep certain demographics of fans from attending games.
