Halloween Masks Call Presidential Race

Posted: Updated:

The countdown is on to one of the scariest times of the entire year --a  time when familiar faces wear masks, and you discover sides of your friends you didn't know they had. No, not Halloween: election season.

And if you're browsing the store for a costume this close to Halloween, having some trouble making up your mind, whatever you do, don't go to Spirit Halloween. Because according to tradition, whoever you pick -- Democrat, or Republican -- could swing the real vote in the real guy's favor.

"I think it's kind of neat. They get a say, see where it shifts," says store manager Justin Collins.

So far, shoppers at Spirit Halloween sore nationwide have bought Obama masks over Romney sixty five to thirty five percent.

Republicans say that's making them want to run screaming for the real polls.

"Yes it does. I'm planning to vote, anyways," says Dia Rominski.

No word on whether politicians think real polls are decided here.

"I'm thinking if they did they'd probably buy their own masks," laughs Collins.

But if election fatigue is making it hard to tell the rubber masks from the real thing --

"I'm not voting this year," says one shopper. "I just don't like either of the candidates."

-- then that's what's really scary.
