Who needs polls and political science models when you have squirrels and cookies to predict elections?
Cookies: Family Circle magazine has collected cookie recipes from candidates’ wives since 1992 and asked readers to pick their favorite. The winner has ended up as first lady all but once. This year, Michelle Obama’s White and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies edged out Ann Romney’s M&M’s cookies by a mere 287 votes among the 9,000 cast, suggesting an Obama win. (Of course, you could take a stab at bipartisanship and try making both recipes -- that way, your taste buds will win.)
