Ohio State victory a good omen for Obama?

Ohio State clubbed Illinois in college football today, 52-22. Given Ohio's importance as a swing state this year, the Buckeye victory could be a big one for Obama. Economists have found that a win by the local team in the week before an election can boost the percentage of the vote for the incumbent by approximately 1.5 percentage points.

Let's not forget Florida. They won today also, 14-7 over Missouri. Not a dominant victory, but a win is a win, which is what Democrats will be hoping to say on Tuesday.
