In 2012, 7-Eleven Inc. asked its customers to choose -- Obama or Romney? Coffee drinkers could select a blue Obama cup or a red Romney cup when they stopped at one of the company's thousands of convenience stores. Previous 7-Election promotions had successfully predicted the winners of the last three presidential elections. And for 2012? Another winner: Obama 59% to Romney 41%.
