Can Mask Sales Predict Our Next President? - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Forget about listening to all the political analysts on the television news shows. If you really want to know who is going to win the Presidential race, just check out how many Halloween masks have been sold.
According to BuyCostumes.com and Spirit Halloween Store, the number of Barack Obama or Mitt Romney Halloween masks that sell this season will determine who will be sitting in the White House.
The numbers don’t lie.
BuyCostumes.com’s sales have accurately predicted the winner in the last three elections and Spirit Halloween Store’s sales have been correct four out of four times.
President of Spirit Halloween says, "Election years are always exciting times around Spirit Halloween, as our Presidential Index has proven to be a consistent and accurate predictor of the next president for nearly two decades."
BuyCostumes claims that “history has proven that the individual who's likeliness sells the most, will win the election.”
Currently, both sites show Obama is leading Romney in Halloween mask sales.
Do you think this year’s mask sales will accurately predict the Presidential election's outcome?
