So many superstitions and statistics around this Election Day, predicting the winner.  Here are a couple:

The “Redskins  Rule,” as predicted the winner since 1940.  A Redskin win meant the incumbent party’s re-election and a loss meant the challenger would win. Well, the Redskin lost, so…..but wait..  The only time the Rule didn’t apply was George W. Bush’s election over John Kerry in 2004 after the Redskins lost.

A  Cincinnati-based bakery,  has held a presidential cookie poll since 1992.  They say they are within four points of the actual election.  At this hour,  President Obama is leading Gov. Mitt Romney 13,247 to 11,880 cookies.

Then there is a poll for just dogs, polling place, two food bowls.  Right now, 45 percent of the dogs were undecided, 35 percent chose Romney and Obama came in last at 20 percent.

Local 7-Eleven stores are conducting  their 4th annual 7-Election coffee cup poll where customers may choose an Obama or Romney coffee cup.  According to 7-Eleven, President Obama is leading that election.

But in the end, we all know, WE decide the winner.  Don’t forget to vote today!
