For the third year, 7-Eleven is conducting its own opinion poll and will decide whose likely to win the presidential election based on coffee cup sales.
7-Eleven customers will have three coffee cup choices: blue for Democrats, red for Republicans, and regular 7-Eleven cups for “undecided” or “indifferent” voters.
The color of each cup purchased is automatically recorded in 7-Eleven’s registry, allowing the company to display cup sales information on their website and update it on a regular basis.
The cup poll will run until Election Day.
During the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections 7-Eleven coffee drinkers closely matched the official election results. More than six million cups were cast in each of the past 7-Election polls.
