Sept. 18, 2008 - PRLog -- If sales of political bobblehead characters are any indication, Barack Obama will win the November election by a landslide over John McCain.  In a survey conducted this week by Winzone, Inc., customers at bobblehead retailer ElectAHead.com are purchasing Barack Obama bobbleheads by a 6 to 1 margin over John McCain.

Although recent news polls have shown Obama and McCain in a tight race, current ElectAHead.com sales of Democratic bobbleheads, including an extraordinary likeness of Hilary Clinton, are soaring over the GOP product.  Sales of ElectAHead.com’s bobbleheads on EBay also show a slight trend towards Obama, although McCain bobblehead sales have surged post-convention and continue an upward trend.  

Election predictions based on political memorabilia sales have long been a source of speculation.  One company claims to have successfully predicted the outcome of previous Presidential races based on sales of candidates’ masks.  A national bakery organization is currently conducting a voting “poll” based on sales of major party cookies.

Dave Siemienski, Creator of ElectAHead.com, suspects his company’s Obama bobblehead is currently outselling the others because of the passion of Obama followers.  “There is an extremely loyal nature to those who believe in Barack Obama’s politics,” he said.   “People get really enthusiastic about him and want to collect anything associated with his campaign.”

Siemienski, a former Cold Stone Creamery franchisee who incidentally coined the company’s nationwide mantra "It's a great day for ice cream," is not surprised that ElectAHead.com’s McCain bobblehead sales are on the rise. “McCain bobbleheads are selling because people realize this is the best way to respectfully support his candidacy without the need of getting into painful political debates,” Siemienski said. “When our bobbleheads are placed on a desk or counter, they immediately show admiration and respect for the character depicted."

With just 48 days until the November election, buyers are snatching up ElectAHead.com’s quality bobbleheads both for historic and future value. Political collectibles traditionally rise in popularity and price over the years, especially those associated with presidential elections.

Whether Obama or McCain wins the actual election is secondary to Siemienski’s long-time business partner Howard Davidson.  “I know for sure that our bobbleheads are “heads” above any others out there in terms of quality and look-alikes,” says Davidson.  “ElectAHead.com’s bobbleheads are made with exceptional quality, and that is clearly what consumers want, no matter who they vote for. “

In fact, ElectAHead.com’s bobblehead dolls are created by the same company that manufactures bobbleheads for the NBA, MLB, NHL, and the WWE, in addition to a wide variety of entertainers in movies and television.

ElectAHead.com’s art department of highly-trained sculptors created remarkable likenesses of Obama, McCain, Clinton and Rudy Giuliani.  The details on these bobblehead dolls distinguish them from other less look-alikes on the market. It is this level of design quality that sets Elect-A-Head.com’s bobbleheads apart from any other attempts at duplicating these products.  “We used our entrepreneurial spirits to creatively produce a quality product that can still be a whole lot of fun,” Davidson said.  

Winzone, Inc., the parent company of ElectAHead.com, has been in business in the Los Angeles area since 1997. The company includes retail, publishing, graphic design, and movie production divisions. Winzone’s management team has decades of experience in retail sales, franchising, restaurant management, public administration, TV and film production, graphic design, and advertising.
