One of the leading online election related merchants is Café Press.
They sell Tee shirts and anything else with candidates names on it.. Café Press has no political bent; they are just merchants selling what people want.
If people like what they are selling they will make more of that product. If people show little interest in a particular product they make fewer of that item and move on to offer what they see will sell. .Café Press (CP) latest sales figures for pro Barack Obama items are significant.
When CP compared its Obama items sales figures this past week it revealed some telling information.
They found that compared to this time in 2008, their Obama items sales figures were down sharply. Where the ratio of anti to pro Obama items was 14% to 86%, that figure today is 56% anti Obama to 44% pro Obama.
The anti- figure has taken a huge jump up and the pro number has sagged by almost C P reports that since January not only have sales of pro Romney items been greater than Obamas 2008 figures, but the ratio of pro to anti Romney items has substantially exceeded Obamas positive side sales.
Just 5% of all Romney related merchandise has been anti with a whopping 95% being pro.
Using what is calls an Election Meter to track these sales C P has developed its own theory about what the results might mean in Novembers election.
Its director of marketing explained the meaning of these sales this way, We believe that how people spend money on political merchandise is a leading indicator of how they will ultimately vote.
At Café Press we track the spending on candidate related gear
often in line with polls and voting results.

send them to clothe the poor in countries like where our president’s brother lives.
I'm sure there is a shortage toilet paper or bathroom rags in the third world...
Add the “N” before “Obama” and run a red slash through the symbol and they’ll sell like crazy.
Dog shelters around the country accept donations of old bedding and clothing for dogs to sleep on.
Think of it as payback to him for all of those childhood meals he had in Indonesia ;)
They are great for wiping grease off an old engine.
Wash rags to use on my vehicles.
Send them to me. They would be fine for oil changes.
MOOCH will just have to place her order real soon to get the ratings up.
Donate them to local prisons for distribution to the lavatory clean-up crews.
Send them to us, there's plenty of room on the back to print derogatory comments and sarcastic remarks.
The beginning of CAPITALISM at it's finest!
OR we could put the stickers on the mouths of liberals to STTFU for a while.
Even his shirts can strain at gnats for relevance.
Use to induce vomiting for poison victims.
What to do with Obama T-shirts nobody wants?
Give them to the Wallstreet Occupiers. They’d make excellent ‘uniforms.’
House-training a potbellied pig.
Cut them into little 5”X6” squares. Diligently tape them together end-wise on a spool of cardboard. Subsequently mount the roll in the handy dispenser located in your bathroom. Problem Solved!
The main problem for Obama t-shirt sales: you can’t use food stamps to buy a t-shirt.
I’ll take them.
I’ll paint a “G” in front of Obama and sell them to Crimson Tide fans.
Another idea...rather than spend extra money altering them, drop the price and include a red Sharpie. We can draw our own "N" and !
Exactly. If the shirts are cheap enough, you buy a few and correct them manually. Or buy a bunch and have the local sporting goods store overscreen them.
"...eight inch squares"
cut off sleeves, stitch up and reuse as free diapers for the poor.
Thanks, now I need a new monitor.
The Obama 2012 shirts will turn the African fashion world on it's big ear.
The best use of all for an old tee shirt is gun cleaning. Once I’ve oiled the outside of one of my guns, I wipe it off with an old tee shirt. I keep the shirt, never wash it, and use it over and over again. The mellowing combination of gun oil and Hoppe’s No. 9 works wonders on the guns.
If they sell them cheap enough ,I will take a case.
They make good garage rags.
I could use a few for cleaning up my golf clubs.
Also good for shoe polishing. Same deal, let the polish saturate the rag; eventually you'll only have to open the polish can about every third shine. I have one I've been using about nine years now; well seasoned!
crap on ‘em and set ‘em on fire?
I'd be willing to bet that you actually can.
Besides, food stamps used to typically trade for 50 cents on the dollar for cash. (Since I haven't lived in Oakland for many years, I don't know the current exchange rate.) Sell the stamps; buy the t-shirt with the cash.
I still have my X-Rated “Good Bush” “Bad Bush” tee shirt I picked up in a Montreal souviner shop for laughs.
Cut them into 1 inch squares and use them to clean my Glock 27. I would save them only for the very dirtiest cleanings. That would make him special.
My favorite gun cleaning tee shirt is about 35 years old. Never been worn during all that time!! It’s achieved its highest and best use.
It’s not easy getting cash to an e-commerce site.
