Election predictors

You want a time-tested method of predicting presidential elections? Look no further than the Washington Redskins:

The Washington Redskins have proved to be a time-tested election predictor. In the previous 15 elections, if the Washington Redskins have lost their last home game prior to the election, the incumbent party has lost the White House. When they have won, the incumbent has stayed in power.

This election year, that deciding game takes place on Sunday, October 31 ... vs. Green Bay.

Polls can be a helpful guide, but the Redskins have accurately predicted every election since 1932. Is there any method of prediction that has been more accurate?
