When a customer makes a purchase, they cast a vote for the candidate they support in the Presidential election. The vote is counted in the state to which their order is shipped. The Electoral Prediction's are created by these sales statistics.
The fun and innovative dolls are favored for Stress relief by voters who love to squeeze and torment their opponent. Nearly 1/2 of customers also buy the doll of the candidate they support with the intent to "Squeeze with affection".
