I should have known that my bracket would be completely busted the second that President Obama revealed he had matched my choice of Kentucky to take it all. The man hasn’t picked a winner, in basketball or anywhere, since 2009.
But were you following in the footsteps of Obama’s 2012 opponent, you would, right now, be in the top 0.1% of brackets in the country, according to ESPN.com. Mitt Romney not only correctly predicted the Final Four, he selected Duke to take it all.
Mitt Romney on Monday night found himself once again in the exclusive club of the 0.1%.
This time, though, Romney’s elite status has nothing to do with his multi-million dollar fortune, and everything to do with the results of the NCAA tournament.
Romney’s bracket ranked 6,326th out of the more than 11.5 million brackets filled out on ESPN.com, meaning he scored better than 99.9% of all entrants. A Romney source shared this weekend the former presidential candidate’s bracket with The Huffington Post.
Romney’s top ranking came after Duke University took home the trophy over the University of Wisconsin in the NCAA final Monday night.
Romney correctly picked the Final Four teams and six of the Elite Eight.
Obama fell in the bottom 40%.
