If you thought the terror was over.... If you thought the nightmare was finished... you’re wrong. Election Day is still more than a month away and if the condition of our country isn’t scary enough maybe you’ll be frightened that Halloween costume sales may predict the winner of the election.
Costume mask sales for Buycostumes.com and Spirit Halloween have correctly predicted every Presidential race for more than a decade. Spirit Halloween for the past four elections and BuyCostumes.com for the past three.
One trick to this trend, a candidate’s mask may sell well in a state but he may not win it in the Election. Obama's mask is a bestseller in Texas, but odds are he won't carry the state.
Right now at both stores, Obama’s mask leads Romney’s mask by 30%-40%.
What’s really scary though, the winner will be either a man who some say has had little success in the last four years or one who some say has already written off 47% of the country.
