There is an urban legend, a true one, that says if the Washington Redskins lose their home game just before and election, the challenger wins. The Skins lost yesterday to the Packers. This would seen to indicate a win for John Kerry. I knew I liked the Redskins for some reason.
As of yesterday (Oct. 31) electoral-vote.com had Kerry ahead of Bush 283 to 246. 270 votes are needed to win.
Update: Today Kerry is ahead 298 to 231. Looking good, although I wish Tennessee wasn’t almost certain to go for Bush.
