Tuesday Rick Santorum won the primaries in Mississippi and Alabama which means there is still no clear frontrunner in the GOP race.
But it might not matter.
Because the date of the election may have already guaranteed a Republican candidate will win.
An intriguing pattern has emerged over the last 150 years: When the U.S. Presidential election is held on November 6th the Republican candidate always wins.
In 1860, the first year the presidential election fell on November 6th, Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, was elected to office.
The next time the election was held on the 6th of November, Benjamin Harrison, also Republican, won.
On November 6th, 1900, Republican William McKinley defeated William Jennings Bryan.
In 1928, Herbert Hoover, a Republican, won on the 6th.
In 1956, on November 6th, Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson to be re-elected.
And Republican incumbent Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale on November 6, 1984.
The trend doesn't look good for Democrat Barack Obama heading into this year's election.
But all might not be lost for this country's Democrats.
Just last week OutFront posted a blog about how this year's Oscar results guaranteed an Obama win.
Or maybe, despite all of these strange coincidences, it might come down to the voters.
What do you think of these theories? Who are you voting for in this year's election? No, really, do OutFront staffers really have this much free time?
