Keith Olbermann of MSNBC's Countdown reports that Obama has been predicted to win the US presidential election by a landslide. The poll was taken across six minor league baseball stadiums over six nights and asked 'voters' to choose their preference by selecting the bobblehead doll (pictured) of their favoured candidate. The bobblehead is a human version of the nodding dog, normally dolls are of baseball players but you can pick up a range of 'nodding' celebs from Einstein to Mr T. Olbermann is not too specific who set this 'experiment' up but it can do the Obama campaign no harm - the news is that ordinary America think he is the best candidate. What is scary is that someone, somewhere thought this would be the best way to predict the outcome of an election, scarier still is the lead mirrors polls around the same time. I think it was a local Yorkshire-based newspaper that showed fruit and veg stalls selling the appropriately coloured products to match the parties during the 2001 UK General Election, not sure if bobbleheads would be a good alternative or if Brown, Cameron or Clegg would agree to having their doll made either. Well they might... Brown might be willing to have anything made that will improve his popularity!
