TX, KS, & AZ are going Obama? Seems unlikely.

As far as I know, there are no 7-Elevens in Texas south of Dallas.

This means that Obama is automatically president and Romney has to drink 4 hour old decaf.

There are about 4 of them in Killeen. I get their hot dogs once in awhile.

Likewise, most of the Kansas locations are in Overland Park.

Based on those results, I'm guessing the only 7-Eleven stores in Texas participating in this are the ones in Austin and El Paso.

This poll is invalid because they did not survey Wawa customers.
 
2012-09-14 08:51:11 AM  
Biased poll. Of course the people who stop in at the 7-11 for a "grape soda" are going to vote Obama.

Anybody else hear a dog whistle?

Every 7-11 in Missouri are in KC or STL. No one thinks the state will break fro Obama.

Agreed. Who goes to a 7/11 when a Wawa, or hell even a Sheetz, is available?

The Texas poll is divided into three areas:
DFW
Austin
Killeen-Temple-Waco
As expected Obama is leading in the DFW and Austin areas and slightly behind Romney in the Killeen-Temple-Waco areas (areas where Ft. Hood and Bush's ranch are located)
Pretty accurate

No one can trust this poll, it doesn't include a vanilla option for Johnson

Food at a 7/11 is mostly bought by people with jobs on their way to work or at lunch. That's why the Red is underrepresented.

In Arizona, the Illegals get their coffee at 7-11 (or Circle K), and the Elitists are at Starbucks.

Illegals always vote Obama

I was in Dallas in Sept/Oct 2008. I saw the McCain and Obama cups, thought it was odd. Not as odd a being approached in the street in Columbus and asked who I was voting for...

Also it was the only place I could find coffee in Dallas, WTF is wrong with you people, where are your Tim Horton's, Dunkin' Donuts, etc? I took me half an hour of driving to find the 7-11 too. To be fair, I'm Canadian, we have a Tim Horton's on every street corner, sometimes two (one inside the other).

I support the marketing company that does this promotion for 7-11. In Texas we have 7-11s in D/FW area and greater Austin Area and that's it. "Not Particpaing" actually means. "No 7-11s in that state".

The results predictions accuracy has been on popular vote nationally compared to total of all 7-Election results not just by state.

Dallas County and Austin vote overwhelmingly Blue IRL.

Also...they did this in 2000 and the results were tied dead even.

There is one in the Waco area now. It just opened recently. In 1984 there was about twenty of them but they were all sold.
I worked at a 7-11 in 1984. We were selling bubble gum cigars with the candidates names and faces on them. We couldn't keep the "Reagan's" in stock and we only sold two of the "Mondales". I remember asking people why they prefered the "Reagans". They all gave the same answer "cuz Mondales a schumck!!"

Funny you should ask...Bain Capital happened to Dunkin Doughnuts, and they closed them all... Recently they reopened a couple of half assed ones that are paired with Baskin Robins. Timhortons? Seriously Snow Back...this is America.

You can get coffee in absurd variety at any gas station in Dallas...also

Have you heard of Starbucks?

Like this:

Obama leading Romney by 12 points in Utah? Give me a break. How can this be a valid poll when Mormons don't drink coffee? Besides, who do you find running every 7-Eleven? Illegal Muslim immigrants. All Muslins are bound under Sharia Law to support a fellow Muslim. They're rigging the poll to suppress the votes of Real Americans. How is this legal? It's not, but you won't find terrorist sympathizer Eric Holder looking into it. He's too busy selling guns to Mexican Drug Lords.
