MILWAUKEE – On November 2nd, when the Milwaukee Admirals take on the Lake Erie Monsters at 7:00 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, the Ads will take a straw poll of their fans -- four days before voters head to the polls in the 2012 presidential election.
The team will give out 5,000 bobbleheads -- 2,500 each of President Obama and Governor Romney, courtesy of Robert Haack Diamonds. When a fan comes through the gate, they will be asked to choose which candidate’s bobblehead they want to receive and the candidate who runs out first will be declared the winner.
“I encourage our fans, no matter their political persuasion, to engage in the machine of democracy by supporting Admirals hockey," Admirals President Jon Greenberg said.
This will be the third straw poll that the Admirals have conducted, albeit the first via bobblehead. Back in 2008, the Admirals successfully predicted that President Barack Obama would defeat John McCain to win the Presidency and in 2010 the Admirals poll predicted a Scott Walker Gubernatorial win and, that was confirmed as well.
