The BuyCostumes.com Presidential Mask Poll is a great way for Americans to show their enthusiasm and have a little fun with the election process as we head into Super Tuesday.
New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
BuyCostumes.com, a leading online retailer of costumes and costume accessories, launched an online poll to gauge the results of presidential primaries. Called the Official Presidential Mask Poll(sm), this “straw poll” tallies votes based on sales of paper masks of the current GOP hopefuls: Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum, as well as President Barack Obama. Votes are shown in a day-to-day chart and by overall percentage on the company’s website. Masks are available for $0.99 each.
The poll results change almost daily. As of the first of March, there is a ten point spread among the candidates: Ron Paul holds the lead with 24%, compared to Mitt Romney with 17%. Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich follow with 15% and 14%, respectively. President Barack Obama has 20% of overall mask sales.
“The BuyCostumes.com Presidential Mask Poll is a great way for Americans to show their enthusiasm and have a little fun with the election process as we head into Super Tuesday,” explained Daniel Haight, President & CEO of BuySeasons, Inc. the parent company of BuyCostumes.com.
Since 2000, the poll has typically coincided with the general elections; however, this year the Official Presidential Mask Poll began with the Iowa caucuses in January. Once a Republican candidate is chosen, the poll will be reset for the general election.
