Election 2012: Election Superstitions
CHARLOTTE, NC- When presidential polls get too confusing, some people rely on election superstition.
Everything from sports to astronomy and even the candidate's middle names are used to predict the next president.
Theorists point to the fact that republicans have won every November 6 presidential election since 1860.
But baseball superstition proves something different.
When the National League wins the World Series, like the San Francisco Giants did - the Democratic ticket wins 67 percent of the time. If the American League wins, the Republican presidential candidate has won the White House 59 percent of time.
It’s been true in the last three elections.
College football has a part in this too. The winner of the Alabama versus LSU game has correctly predicted the winner in the last seven elections.
Alabama won on Saturday, which bodes well for President Obama's re-election.
With a handful of superstitions that don't match up - the fate of Tuesday’s election lies in the hand of voters at poll stations throughout the country. For now, it's anybody's guess.
Guam, a U.S. territory, can't vote for president, but a straw poll has revealed the winner in each presidential election since 1984.
