Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Stop the presses! Obama is trouncing Romney in the 7-ELECTION poll 58-42

Can I repeat that?


In each of the three previous presidential elections, the poll has accurately predicted who will be the next U.S. President.  In fact in 2004 and in 2008, the Coffee Cup Poll was within 1% of the actual results.
7-Election: Coffee sales predict presidential winner

I actually posted a diary on this in 2008. This 7-ELECTION has been accurate in 2004 and 2008.

University of South Florida Professor of Political Science Dr. Susan MacManus says the sheer size of the net cast by the 7-Eleven poll may partly explain why it's been so accurate.

"You're getting the rural, the suburban and the urban vote and you're getting people of all income levels. But you're partially getting a large number of middle class voters, which of course are the bulk of the electorate," MacManus said.

Amazing state by state results after the jump....

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

A sampling of states in the Obama column: (only 4 aren't)

Florida 54-46
South Carolina 52-48
Texas 58-42 (yes Obama is trouncing Romney in Texas)
