Politics Gets Scary
(WOLO) COLUMBIA,S.C., --
While zombie costumes and Super Hero outfits are still popular, with the Presidential election right around the corner, Presidential Masks are flying off of store shelves.
Halloween Express Manager, Libya Rentz says while they have seen quite a few people playing with them in the store and trying them on, she anticipates within the next week or so there is a good chance they could sell out.
Similar to the election, the sale of both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney masks are neck and neck. It may also indicate who could end up in the White House.
According to the company who makes the masks, Po-Way Based Disguise Incorporated says they have been monitoring the sale of masks in comparison to each election since 1996. They say in most cases, the top selling masks usually matches the candidate who comes out with a victory.
Whether or not that theory will hold up is one that's still up for debate.
