Predicting the results of the presidential election

Did you know that there are two ways to determine who will be the next President without looking at poll numbers? Yes! It’s true!

First, you can watch the Washington Redskins play against the Green Bay Packers this Halloween.

Second, you can check how many Halloween masks of each candidate were sold.

These methods are time-proven and highly scientific. Plus, they’re absolutely realistic, as they don’t bother with third party candidates at all.

Caveat: There’s no word yet on how advertising for the Halloween masks will have an effect on the outcome (especially since there is a “cast your vote! buy a mask!” link on the page). Due to that inconsistency, I put more faith in the Redskins game as a predictor.
