Check it out, strange but true: The U2 Factor
Every time U2 has released a new album in a U.S. presidential election year, the Republican candidate has gone on to win the election.
Seriously, it goes back to 1980 when Boy was released and Ronald Reagan won the election. In 1984, we got The Unforgettable Fire, and Reagan won again. In 1988, it was Rattle and Hum and George H. W. Bush. U2 didn't release a new album in 1992 or 1996. In 2000, it was All That You Can't Leave Behind and George W. Bush. And in 2004, it was Bush winning again and How To Dismantle an Atomic Bombhitting store shelves.
By the way, U2 does NOT have a new album coming out this year, which bodes well for the Democrats.
