First it was jeweler Ann Hand who started a popularity vote between Sens. Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama based on the sales.
Now, Jones Soda Co. is getting into the act by testing which candidate can sell the most of their Pure Cane Soda. Jones is selling the soda for the pricey $14.99 a six-pack and revealing the sales figures on their special site, campaigncola.com. So far, as Ann Hand found, the sales mirror the general popularity of the candidates. And that means Obama is winning.
We'll keep you updated on the Jones vote. And check back here next week when Whispers finally reveals who the most popular Capitol Bobble was in sales from maker WeBobble.com.
