Election 08: Their Cups Runneth Accurately

By Matt Shevin

At 7-Eleven, the 7-Election is back and in full force. Here’s how it works: customers choose between an Obama blue cup and a McCain red cup when they buy a self-serve hot drink, and 7-Eleven keeps an online tally.

While the folks at 7-Eleven HQ are quick to temper their poll as unscientific and unofficial, the results speak for themselves, and apparently Gallup doesn’t hold a candle to coffee, tea and spiced-pumpkin latte. Purchases at the convenience store giant have predicted the last two presidential elections within one percentage point of the actual final results

As of this week, the Obama cup is beating the living daylights out of McCain’s counterpart, leading in 28 of the 30 states in which 7-Elevens are located.
 
If these stats hold up, and the cups prophesize the outcome once again, Obama will receive 388 of the electoral votes from the 28 states in which he holds a lead. He needs 270 to win.

Safe to say, Barack will drink to that.

You are going to be so shocked to find out your darling boy didn't make it.  Soon...that certainty will fade into reality...there are STILL more true American's that believe in what our founding fathers put in place than all the heathens put together.  Plus....you still can't organize.

Deriving information online is the most significant contribution brought by computers. Through different websites is easier to look for your desired information.A very concrete example is a social profile websites have become almost as important as having an actual address, as so many people contact each other through websites such as MySpace and Facebook, or even your personal blog.  You know who else might be looking at your online social profile?  Prospective employers – they will look you up, and see what they can figure out.  The practice is called “vetting,” and it is gaining ground, as employers want to see just what you are like in your off time, in case it turns out you are a high risk type of person.   Time to update that <a href="http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/03/01/workwatch-social-network-profile/">social profile</a> and make sure nothing on there is damaging.
