S&P 500 tracking the average performance for an election year

The chart below below from Bespoke Investment Group plots the average performance of the S&P500 Index in an election year and the performamce of the index this year.

As can be seen, the market in 2012 has tracked pretty closely the average market in all election years since 1928. If this tracking continues, expect the market to increase to the end of the year.
