This is now the 3rd time that neighborhood 7-Eleven(R) stores offered a somewhat unscientific yet scarily accurate presidential coffee cup poll. Cleverly referred to as 7-election, in the 2000 inaugural event, now-President George Bush out-cupped Democratic nominee, Sen. Al Gore by 1 percentage point. Just before the next presidential election in 2004, President Bush coffee cups outsold Sen. John Kerry ones by 2 percentage points. The current 2008 7-election runs until election day and at this time sales of the blue 20-ounce cups for Democratic candidate, Sen. Barack Obama have crushed the sale of the red 20-ounce cups for Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain. Details of the undecided vote are not known at this time.
Very clever 7-Eleven marketing idea. (the McCain staff is now forced to buy a lot of coffee)
You choose Obama, undecided or McCain in coffee
The current 7-election map looks mighty blue
