After successfully predicting election results in 2000 and 2004, BuyCostumes.com sets out to unmask the new president of the United States.

BuyCostumes.com, the pioneer in mask poll prediction, is bringing new tricks and treats to the 2008 Official Presidential Mask Poll that you won't see anywhere else.

Don't get fooled by those claiming to be able to predict the outcome of the election. BuyCostumes.com is the only company with a 100% success rate having predicted both the 2000 and 2004 elections as well as the 2008 primaries based on the sales of candidates masks. Monitoring and tracking each sale of a candidate's mask in the 2000 and 2004 elections, BuyCostumes.com 100% accurately predicted the outcome of both of those elections. In 2004, George Bush masks took 53% of the "votes" to John Kerry's 47%, and in 2000, George Bush won with 57% compared with Al Gore's 43%.

This year, BuyCostumes.com jumped into the polling arena earlier than previous years and tracked candidate data during the primaries. BuyCostumes.com commissioned eight original custom paper masks to track the following candidates: Republicans Giuliani, Huckabee, McCain, Paul and Romney; Democrats Clinton, Edwards and Obama. Nearly mirroring conventional polls, Obama and Clinton fought it out to the very end with Barack outselling Hillary 50.38% to 49.62%. John McCain won in a landslide, outselling all his competition. 60% of the Republican votes went to McCain with 40% going to all the other candidates combined.

BuyCostumes.com was ahead of the game with the vice-presidential candidates also. While every other costumer was scrambling to get Sarah Palin and Joe Biden masks, BuyCostumes.com had already started the nation's first ever Vice Presidential "mask popularity contest." With the selection of Palin, no matter which party wins, the United States will be witnessing history this November. John McCain must have given this some thought - Palin is currently outselling Biden 79% to 21%.

What are mask sales telling us so far? Barack Obama has a significant lead in what are believed to be the biggest swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. He is ahead 61% to 39% in Pennsylvania and 62% to 38% in Florida. His biggest lead is in Ohio where he is outselling McCain 82% to 18%. Every President since 1960 has carried at least two of these three states. If the election were to take place today, according to BuyCostumes.com mask sales, Barack Obama would win with 56% of the votes to McCain's 44%.
