3 in a row for Obama in BobbleElection

If Charleston RiverDogs’ fans are any indication, then Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States.

The RiverDogs, one of the six Minor League Baseball teams of The Goldklang Group,
conducted their Bobblection on Friday, Aug. 8, as the first 1,000 fans “voted” for either Barack Obama or John McCain by accepting a bobblehead likeness of each presidential candidate.  The candidate whose bobble-likeness ran out first was declared the winner.

Earlier in the week, The Group’s Hudson Valley (NY) Renegades and the Brockton (MA) Rox held their elections and Obama walked away with a close 51.8 percent of the vote.

In Charleston, the range was much larger as Obama supporters first reached the 500 mark for their bobbleheads.  McCain fans were at 360.

Round 4 is in St. Paul Saturday.

Obama wins again in Brockton

The polls opened early at Campanelli Stadium with a double header pushing ahead the night’s start time to 5:05 PM.  However voter turnout was strong and an early projection held true.  During the first game of the doubleheader, the public address announcer declared that with 10% of the votes tallied, Obama held a slight edge.  When all of the ballots were counted and verified (there will not be a re-count Florida), Obama had captured a majority vote of 52.3 percent.

Bobblection Week 2008 continues on Friday night in Charleston, South Carolina when the Charleston RiverDogs host the Rome Braves.  Analysts have not yet cast any projection. 

Brockton’s Bobblection was the second stop on the Bobblection Week 2008 tour.  On Wednesday in Hudson Valley, New York, the Hudson Valley Renegades saw Obama sneak away with a tight victory.

BobbleElections have begun, Hudson Valley has spoken

The Hudson Valley Renegades were the first team to hold the Goldklang group’s 2nd ever bobbleElection and the results are in…750 for Obama, 713 for McCain.  Fans 18 and over like myself were given tickets upon entry to redeem at “voting booths” by the right field picnic area at Dutchess Stadium.  Obama claimed victory at approximately 7:40 pm after wich the remaining McCains were distributed to those who still had the raffle style tickets left.

Next stop on the campaign trail is August 7th with the Brockton Rox.  Stay tuned.
