Mitt Romney Action Figure Outsells Santorum And Gingrich Dolls, Indicating A Sure Primary Win
2:45 pm, March 3rd | by Laura Donovan
A lot of people are wondering why the Republican party still doesn’t have an election frontrunner, but Herobuilders founder Emil Vicale might be able to end the mystery and reveal who is going to go head-to-head with Obama this November.
Vicale, who is known for making political action figures, says the most popular politicians often sell the most amount of action figures and that his new Mitt Romney action figure is no exception. Vicale said in a press release that the Romney action figure has outsold sweatervest-wearing Santorum doll 4 to 1 and that no one has bought a Newt Gingrich figure yet. Why are we not surprised about that last part?
When asked if he tied Romney doll popularity to the former Massachusetts governor’s heavily discussed Ken doll looks, Vicale told The Jane Dough, “Either that or he is the choice for the nomination…we can typically tell based upon sales so it looks like he will win.”
Well, there you go. No need to speculate further on who is going to represent conservatives in the fall. Granted, the action figure sales are also consistent with the latest polls, but for obvious reasons, we trust poll data over toy sales any day.
