DUNKIN' DONUTS TO CONDUCT PRESIDENTIAL DOUGHNUT POLL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

DUNKIN' DONUTS TO CONDUCT PRESIDENTIAL DOUGHNUT POLL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
 RANDOLPH, Mass., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Gauging proper opinion before an election has become nearly as important as the election itself. A few New Hampshire Dunkin' Donuts shops have decided to get in on the forecasting business, and are conducting a presidential primary poll of their own.
 For three days, from Feb. 9 to 11, Dunkin' Donuts customers in New Hampshire shops will be invited to vote with their donuts rather than their ballots. Each of the seven major presidential candidates has been assigned a top-selling donut variety, ranging from the Boston Kreme Filled for Massachusetts' Paul Tsongas to the Old Fashioned for Patrick Buchanan. Other candidates include: Jelly Filled for Jerry Brown, Chocolate Frosted for Bill Clinton, French Cruller for Tom Harkin, and Glazed Chocolate Cake for Bob Kerrey. And of course, the Glazed Honey Dipped for incumbent George Bush.
 Customers vote for their candidate by purchasing the donut assigned to that candidate. Furthermore, they are encouraged to "Vote early and vote often." Even the undecided voters will have an option. They can select the Coffee Roll which winds around and around like so many opinions prior to the election.
 Could this new polling technique put the likes of Gallup or Roper out of business? The Dunkin' Donuts shop owners don't think so. Yet they are sure the voting experience will be much more enjoyable.
 Results will be made available on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
