Red State or Blue State? Predict the Presidential Election Outcome



With just one week left before Election Day, you can predict the Presidential Election outcome. Most people are fed up with all the negative campaigning. But in the swing state of Florida, a different type of poll may predict how the political cookie crumbles.

On November 5, a straw poll at the 57th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) will gauge which candidate has the lead in the presidential race. Attendees at the world’s largest in-water boat show will have the opportunity to purchase red or blue cookies in the “Sink or Float” cookie poll and show their preference for the Democratic or Republican nominees. Proceeds from cookie sales will be donated to charity.

Cookies will be on sale at a dedicated “polling place” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, one of the boat show’s seven locations. The winner will be announced shortly after.

Proceeds from the cookie poll will be donated to the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC), which provides medical care, case management, social services and other types of intervention to children and adolescents with chronic illnesses and development disabilities. Each year, CDTC serves more than 11,000 children and youth in South Florida.

The 57th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show takes place November 3-7, 2016, covering seven locations with nearly 1,500 boats across more than 3 million square feet of exhibit space. Approximately 1,000 exhibitors from more than 30 countries display an array of boats, marine products and accessories valued at more than $4 billion. Approximately 100,000 people attend the show every year.
