As of Oct. 11, Mitt Romney is ahead of Barack Obama. Well, that is according to Flying Saucer’s unofficial poll/glassware promotion.
For $7 patrons can choose between Obama and Romney souvenir glasses, and with each glass purchased a tally is put up on a large banner in the bar next to the appropriate candidate’s caricature. The glasses aren’t in yet, but are expected to be in early next week. Those who “vote” will get vouchers and will be able to cash in for the glasses. The results of this mock election will be revealed on Oct. 31.
Romney currently leads Obama 11-7 on the Flying Saucer scoreboard and waitress Brittany Corcoran doesn’t think it looks good for the incumbent.
“I don’t know about Obama catching up,” Corcoran said. “This is Texas.”
In actual polls , the score is a lot closer than Flying Saucer’s non-scientific social experiment. Seeing the deficit on the scoreboard should be a call to arms for liberal beer drinkers.
“The Republicans are out in force and the Democrats are buying glasses just to keep it close,” said bartender Brady Conine. “The other day two Republicans bought Romney glasses that prompted a Democrat sitting behind them to buy two.”
