Bob Dylan called the election a day early when he predicted last night that President Obama would handily win, The Associated Press reports. "Don't believe the media. I think it's going to be a landslide," Dylan said midway through performing "Blowin' in the Wind" during the encore of a concert in Madison, Wisconsin. 

Dylan's performance came just hours after Obama had appeared at a Madison rally with Bruce Springsteen. Dylan noted the convergence, saying, "We tried to play good tonight since the president was here today."

The singer's prediction drew a cheer from the crowd as he finished the song.
