NEW BERLIN, WI – November 5th, 2012 – With less than 12 hours before the polls open, BuyCostumes.com announces the outcome of the presidential election. According to their 2012 Official Presidential Mask Poll, Mitt Romney (with 51% of the vote) has secured his place as the 45th President of the United States.
Some may scoff at the notion that masks have the potential to predict something as important as who will lead our country, but since 2000, BuyCostumes.com has used the sales of candidate masks to achieve 100% accuracy in determining the outcome of presidential elections. And according to CEO, Dan Haight, “although this year was the toughest call so far, we’re confident the masks have it right again.”
Can’t buy your candidate into office? BuyCostumes.com thinks you can. The phrase, “Vote early, vote often,” has had an impact, and at $.99 each, the “votes” (mask purchases) have been coming in by the thousands.
The company’s site features an interactive map of the United States, indicating the mask sales for each state. For every costume mask sold, Republicans and Democrats increase their candidate’s odds of occupying the White House.
BuyCostumes.com has been tracking the outcome of the election through all candidates’ mask sales at www.BuyCostumes.com/PresidentialMaskPoll. Click here to see the data.
