Here’s a kooky and potentially sexist way to predict who will win the presidential election come November: Take cookie recipes submitted by first lady Michelle Obama and wannabe first lady Ann Romney submitted to Family Circle magazine and see which people like better.
With election night just eight weeks away, the Occidental Grill & Seafood, a mere two blocks from the White House, decided to do just that. At the end of each meal, diners are presented with both cookies. They submit their preference by secret ballot. The contest runs through the election.
Week 1 has Obama in the lead.
Michelle Obama chocolate chip cookies 57%
Ann Romney M&M oatmeal cookies 40%
