How would the Detroit Tigers winning or losing the World Series affect the outcome of Michigan’s electoral votes?

October 24th, 2012

Game 7 is 10/31. Election day, and really even the parade following a victory, will take place before the 11/6 election date. But it is fun to speculate how the outcome of the World Series could affect the votes. Let’s assume the parade was the day before the election? Would there be undervoting in Detroit? Would certain demographics be more likely to celebrate and be in a not-so-eager voting frame of mind? If the Tigers lost, would people be upset–and would that make it more likely for a vote for Romney or Obama? Who knows. The Yankees are out of the series, so the baseball season ended for me some weeks ago.
