7/11 just rolled out their branded McCain and Obama disposable coffee cups. As this local news report explains, the convenience store does this for every election and keeps track of which cups sell more, and have so far been accurate in predicting the election outcome. For some reason I feel like this is going to lead to some very dumb 7/11 parking lot arguments:


But, no, then there was this: “Non-partisan coffee drinkers and undecided voters can still get their coffee in a regular cup.” I just wanna know if there is a single American out there BORING ENOUGH to specially request a plain cup. If so, it’s that person who should get beaten up by a ragtag bi-partisan gang in the parking lot.

    The customer guy was so sweet and normal. The Obama camp should be putting this guy in commercials where he pleasantly talks about why he supports Obama.

    Is it bad that I want to go buy some coffee from 7/11 now…and while I am filling up my Barack Obama Cup- I want to deface all the McCain cups. That’s wrong- I know.

    I will not touch the Mccain cups.

    Instead I will make a necklace out of many Obama cups and wear it- that’s how much I care…

  3. i like how they state that it isn’t a scientific poll, like we might have been thinking it is.

    The “major” polls “scientifically” sample under 2500 adults or those “likely to vote”.
    This poll samples 3,000,000. That’s a good enough “sample” for me!
    I already put my money on a 60-40 Obama win because of the 7-election poll. I’ll be back Wednesday.

    Ok, not a 50-40 split but a victory just the same. The poll picked the winner but the percentage was off this time.
