7-Election Update

According to the site Obama is ahead of McCain in a landslide 59.3 to 40.7. McCain is only carrying two states so far. New Hampshire and West Virginia.

Although 7-Eleven is not in all 50 states, I do not think that the results would be that much different.

I am still not sure which way I will cast my vote. Neither candidate has distinguished himself in my eyes.

If you have any suggestions, let me know.

A certain convenience store chain is holding an election. When you buy their 20 oz. coffee you have the choice of a regular cup (Undecided), an Obama cup, or a McCain cup.

As of this moment, Obama is ahead 57% to 43% - I guess they aren't factoring in the undecideds. According to the web site past results in 2000 and 2004 were amazingly accurate. Of course it is too soon to tell. This, of course, is not a scientific poll, and people can buy their candidate's cup several times a day if they want. It will be fun to track the progress as it gets nearer to the election.

Of course you don't have to just buy coffee, you could buy tea, hot chocolate or cappachino to participate. So get out there and drink. Let your voice be heard!
