Sarah Palins not running for president, but up until this month she has been beating GOP front-runner Mitt Romney in a different kind of race.
For the past few months, the ex-Republican vice presidential candidate has been whooping the former Massachusetts governor in one websites merchandise sales.
CafePress.com, which lets customers design and sell their own clothing items and other merchandise, finds that in December, Palin-inspired gear far outsold items featuring Romney, 80 percent to 20 percent. An average of 137,000 designs are uploaded to the website each week.
Even last month, people were still picking Palin over the White House hopeful, according to the CafePress meter, which the site dubs its cultural barometer.
Palin-tagged gifts, such as You betcha earrings and a Going Rogue 2012 calendar, were still outselling Romney-inspired items, such as Mitt is Legit shirts and Mutts Against Mitt bumper stickers, 59 percent to 41 percent in January.
It was only this month that Romney has been able to surpass the tough-talking former Alaska governor. According to the sites stats, so far, Romney is leading February sales over Palin, 56 percent to 44 percent.
But both GOP players still have some work to do to catch up with sales of stuff featuring Americas commander in chief and another presidential contender.
President Obama led the pack of candidates in January, and is edging out Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) in February sales.
In other news - 2 x 0 still equals 0.
Someone who willingly buys something with your name and face on it, spending their own money to do so, is probably willing to vote for you, nicht wahr?
I still only know two people in the “real world” who admit to supporting mittens. If he’s so popular why aren’t they more visible?
Maybe you don’t live in Utah or Nevada?
I call BS.
No one is buying shirts with pics of Romney on them, except maybe his staff.
No one! Ain’t buying it. Nope - doesn’t pass the smell test.
Maybe his campaign is buying them to pass out.
partly the lds church is virtually voting as a bloc
second the undercover romneybots are revealing themselves as "romney-buts"
i'm for gingrich BUT i like santorum BUT romney isn't for me BUT
they want a voice in the discussion but too much a coward to admit their position
