Want Trump Beaten In 2020? Tom Brady Needs To Win On Sunday.

I’m sure that headline sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true.  Everyone knows about the affinity between key members of the New England Patriots and President Trump.  But if history is any guide, if Trump is to be defeated next year, Tom Brady is going to have to win another Super Bowl on Sunday.

Going back to 1975, every time the team from the AFC has won the Super Bowl in the year before the presidential election, there has been a change in power at the White House the following year.

SUPER BOWL YEAR AFC WINNER PRESIDENTIAL RESULT THE FOLLOWING YEAR
1975 Pittsburgh Steelers Jimmy Carter (D) succeeds Republican president
1979 Pittsburgh Steelers Ronald Reagan (R) succeeds Democratic president
1999 Denver Broncos George W. Bush (R) succeeds Democratic president
2007 Indianapolis Colts Barack Obama (D) succeeds Republican president
2015 New England Patriots Donald Trump (R) succeeds Democratic president
