The Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series for the first time since 1988 this week.
But it’s not just Dodgers fans who are excited about the news.
And the Dodgers’ World Series win could be bad news for Biden if this trend holds.
Pollsters notoriously blew it in 2016.
Many think they’re on the same track this year.
Think of pollsters like Dallas Cowboys fans – every year they tell you it’s their year to get it right and when it’s time to put up or shut up they crap in their hat.
Even after betting against President Trump in 2016, nearly every poll in this election cycle has him losing big to Joe Biden.
Thankfully for Trump fans, there are other indicators in the real world that some believe are eerily more accurate than the polls at forecasting elections.
According to Fox Business contributor Frank Luntz, when the Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series, the Republican Presidential candidate wins the Presidency.
Luntz told Fox Business’ Mornings with Maria, “Every time the Los Angeles Dodgers have won the World Series in the last 35 years, Republicans have won the White House.”
Luntz reminded Bartiromo that after the Dodgers beat out the Tampa Bay Rays in game six of the World Series to become the MLB’s 2020 World Series Champions.
Of course, Luntz joked, “I don’t know if that is a correlation,” adding that the game was “quite an evening.”
That isn’t the only sports indicator out there for the Presidential election though.
The “Redskins Rule” – er, perhaps it’s the “Washington Football Team formerly known as the ‘Redskins’ Rule” now – says, “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.”
In 2016, the “Redskins Rule” was as wrong as the pollsters as President Trump upset Hillary much in the same way the ‘skins upset the Eagles that year.
This year, the Washington Football Team formerly known as the Redskins have a BYE week, but they absolutely dominated the Dallas Cowboys at home last week, indicating a victory for President Trump.
Only time will tell if the Dodgers’ win and the “Redskins Rule” serve as better indicators for the Presidential election than the pollsters.
