    Interesting little story I found on Breitbart. I had not realized this.

    Republicans Have Won Every November 6th Presidential Election Since 1860

    Here's one more historical curiosity to observe this election cycle. Since election day was standardized in 1845 there have been 6 presidential elections held on November 6th and Republicans have won all six. That means next Tuesday, the 7th Presidential election held on this date, will either break or uphold a streak that began in 1860 with the election of Abraham Lincoln.

    Doesn't sound like the kind of trivia that you're interested in, I gather?;)

    Up until a few years ago, the winner of the NH primary was a predictor of winning the Presidency. Clinton lost the NH primary in 1992, and Bush lost in 2000. Obama lost in 2008.
