Description

It may be unscientific, but 7-Eleven is back with its Presidential Coffee Cup Poll and past results have been surprisingly accurate. The poll is based on which coffee cups customers use: blue for Barack Obama and red for Mitt Romney. The cups also have the candidate's name printed on them. 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.
