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.Amazing state by state results after the jump....
"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.
A sampling of states in the Obama column: (only 4 aren't)
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)
Pennsylvania - 55-45
And to be fair - there are 4 states that are favoring Romney now:
West Virginia 47-53
New Hampshire 49-51
