Securing the Willy Wonka Vote

Obama’s Department of Early Indoctrination wins a tasty victory seven days before the election. Here’s the National Constitution Center press release:

Philadelphia, PA (October 28, 2008) -– One week before Election Day, the National Constitution Center announces the results of its gumball election. Today’s tally shows that Obama has won 61% of the vote with a total of 16,784 gumballs. In conjunction with the Headed to the White House exhibition and the Center’s Election ’08: The Power of We initiative, visitors of all ages have had the opportunity to cast a vote for president in the Center’s Grand Hall Lobby and see the most up-to-date results with a running tally of colored gumballs. Each gumball signified a vote for either John McCain (red), Barack Obama (blue), or a third party candidate (white). John McCain received 33% of the vote with a total of 9,175 gumballs, and third party candidates received 6% of the vote with a total of 1,772 gumballs.

Obama took an early lead at the Center, receiving 58% of the vote during the first week of gumball voting in September. His lead remained steady throughout the following months, but took a substantial jump following the final presidential debate on October 15, bringing him to 64% of the vote.

Yes, but were the votes in question Everlasting Gobstoppers? Or even…ACORNs masquerading as gumballs?!
