Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 6, 2008
BuyCostumes.com, the world's largest online retailer of halloween costumes, accessories and party supplies has 100% successfully predicted the next President of the United States since 2000 based solely on the sales of candidates' masks.
This year, The Company took our Mask Poll a step further and tracked mask sales during the primaries. The results showed McCain taking a significant lead for the Republicans early on; and similarly to polls nationwide, Obama and Clinton were neck-in-neck from January through the very last primaries. Obama had an early lead after Super Tuesday, but Clinton came back strong towards the end making it the closest race in the Poll's 8 year history. Mask sales as of June 5th have Barack beating Hillary 50.38% to 49.62%.
BuyCostumes.com is pleased to announce that our Presidential mask poll predicted Obama would win the Democratic nomination based solely on sales of his masks. The competition between Obama and Clinton was fierce, but in the end BuyCostumes.com customers made their votes known by purchasing more Obama masks than Clinton, solidifying his position as the Democratic nominee.
According to the poll, if the 2008 election took place today, Barack Obama would be our next president, since he is currently leading McCain in total mask sales by 50.77%. McCain has 49.23%. The people have spoken, the votes are in and according to mask sales; the people want Barack Obama over John McCain as of June 5th.
Despite the early results BuyCostumes.com customers continue to vote; each time they purchase a mask they cast a vote for their candidate. BuyCostumes.com will continue to track and report on mask sales daily. Stay up to date by visiting http://www.buycostumes.com/presidentialmaskpoll or by getting the BuyCostume.com's Mask Poll Widget.
"At this point the candidates should focus on selling masks and not partisan politics," joked Jalem Getz, the company's CEO. Despite the fun nature of the campaign, it has been surprisingly accurate; the prediction of Obama becoming the Democratic nominee continues BuyCostumes.com's streak of success since 2000 - 100% so far!
