If somebody told you they could predict the presidential election with food, you’d probably say they’re nuts. But LaMar’s would say: Yeah, we’re doughnuts.
But LaMar’s Donuts is repeating its presidential doughnut poll, which correctly predicted Barack Obama would win in 2008 within two percentage points…
The 2012 Presidential Donut Poll is a reprise of the 2008 (unscientific) survey in which customers were able to select from two limited-edition donuts on sale during the election season: the “Dough-Bama,” a donkey-shaped donut with blue sugar frosting and representing Democratic candidate Barack Obama, or the elephant-shaped “McCandyCain” donut with red sugar, representing Republican nominee John McCain.
The Denver-based doughnut shop (with locations in six states) hand-makes, shapes, and decorates doughnuts to match the candidates and tracks their sales between Sept. 1 and Halloween. The results are maintained at www.lamars.com.
This year the Dough-Bama has returned – to face the Mitt Yum-ney.
