A Presidential election button poll (http://www.usabuttonpoll.com), which measures a personÂs vote for his or her preferred candidate following the purchase of collectable buttons, has Senator John F. Kerry leading President Bush by 2 percentage points if the election where held today.
With more than 18,000 individual votes cast, the http://www.usabuttonpoll.com results show Kerry 50.4%, Bush 48.2% and independent candidate Ralph Nader with 1.66%. Voting percentages are tabulated each evening and include that dayÂs new sales nationally at the companyÂs retail outlets and website. Buying more than one button doesnÂt affect the poll since only one vote is counted per voter. Voters can view and vote online at http://www.usabuttonpoll.com
ÂPeople who purchase a candidateÂs button and know that their preferences are being measured will probably vote and vote for that candidate, said Jim Warlick, originator and owner of the online button poll. Warlick says his companyÂs poll gives a more accurate reading for the election outcome than many polls which rely solely on telephone interviews.
The online polling project (http://www.usabuttonpoll.com) grew out of tallying national campaign button sales from dozens of retail locations during the four previous presidential elections.
The poll has reported election outcomes accurately in 1988, 1992, 1996, and 2000 and has been featured by USATODAY, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, Washington Post, International Herald Tribune and the Washington Times, among others.
