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....

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)
Ohio 68-32 (68?!?)
Missouri 60-40 (Akin doesn't like coffee either)
Wisconsin 59-41
Pennsylvania - 55-45
Colorado 60-40
Virginia 57-43
Arizona 55-45

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
