According to this year’s 7-Election results thus far, Mr. President is 16 points ahead of his opponent Mr. Romney. Yes, you read that correctly, the 7-Election!
For those who have never heard of it (I only discovered it last night), 7-Eleven’s around the country have been participating in their own mock election for the past three presidential races. Customers can choose to have their coffee in either a blue or red cup (they have regular cups for “nonpartisan” folks too).
The 7-Election campaign also has a Mobile Oval Office roaming around the country where you can take a picture with a mock Oval Office and get a free cup of coffee while you’re at it!
I think the whole concept is a fun idea to get people involved in the race even if they’re not really informed or overly-enthusiastic about politics. And as silly as this all may be, the cups have correctly predicted the winner of the last three elections. Something to think about over your morning coffee!
