I can not see what would make them fall because of the election. I wonder if the interest rates will rise after the elections. I can't see how the election would be forcing prices to be higher, but I can see how the govt could be holding interest rates low until after the election to help influence it. Now the question is what would be the result if interest rates started to creep, ever so slowly, upwards. History has shown that when that happened before the "fence sitters" decided to get off the fence increasing sales which normally push up prices.
