There are a lot of weird 2016 polls and metrics out there. From the Redskins last home game before an election to hard to discern economic indicators.
It is hard to sift through all the trash to find what really matters. The truth is really a cliche, the only poll that matters is the one on election day. We can see all the data and indicators we want to confirm our view on the election, but in the end it is (hopefully) the voters who make the final decision.
Sometimes, we feel overwhelmed by the all the data. But here’s a metric that is timely and a bit fun, and could mean Hillary is in for a SPOOKY election.
What do you think? Do you think people dressing up as Trump translates to votes? I am not so sure. If this election has taught us anything, it is the ordinary and expected are OUT the window.The rules have been torn up. New rules haven’t even been written yet because we are in unprecedented territory.
Halloween mask sales have predicted every Presidential winner since 1980. Right now, Trump masks lead Hillary by 30%.
