Ben Claassen's Forecasting Buttons

For the post two Presidential elections, local cartoonist Ben Claassen has made presidential buttons of the candidates, and we sell them at Atomic.

Then we tally the button sales like votes before the election, to see which campaign gets the most votes.

For the second election in a row, Ben's button's have predicted the winner!

Now, we're not saying these buttons are as good as Nate Silver or Paul The Psychic Octopus or even 7-11 coffee cups - but Ben might just be on to something here.
