The 2008 Bumper Sticker Primary, 9-9 to 9-15-07

Since November of 2004, we have been tracking the number of bumper stickers, magnets, campaign buttons and shirts that we sell in support for each of the Democratic candidates in the 2008 presidential race. While polls measure opinions of the moment, our measure tracks a more strong and lasting and lasting commitment to show their support for a particular candidate in a public way. That kind of strong commitment turns into donations, and later turns into votes. The following is the percent share of sales of our Election 2008 gear in the past week of September 9 – September 15, 2007:

Barack Obama: 27.3%
Dennis Kucinich: 25.7%
Hillary Clinton: 18.8%
John Edwards: 10.2%
Al Gore: 5.7%
Mike Gravel: 5.4%
Joseph Biden: 4.9%
Christopher Dodd: 1.6%
Bill Richardson: less than 1 percent

Look for another update next week.
