Polling is never this much fun: Political cookies predict election

You can forget the expensive telephone polls, how about cookie polls? No, we are not talking about Web browsers.
-------
In the polling booth, votes are confidential. At WUSTL, votes are as plain as the icing on customers' faces.

In a lighthearted experiment to see if cookie sales can predict the winner of the upcoming presidential election, WUSTL Dining Services is again selling donkey- and elephant-shaped sugar cookies for $1.25 each.

Dining Services pastry chef Sami Kassis proudly displays his work. The cookies will be available through Nov. 3.

The cookies — with elephants covered by red icing, and donkeys garbed in blue — began being sold Sept. 22 and are available through Nov. 3, the day before the presidential election Nov. 4.
