Trump Leads in Omni's Cocktail Poll by a Small Margin; Clinton Closing in with Every Sip

Hotel guests have less than one month to #DrinkTheVote as part of Omni Hotels & Resorts' "Polling for Cocktails" Presidential predictor promotion

DALLAS (October 11, 2016) – In less than one month, America will pick the next President of the United States. In the meantime, all eyes are on the ever-changing Electoral forecast and today, Omni Hotels & Resorts shares its poll results to date*: Trump in the lead, with Clinton not far behind.

With just a few weeks left, the initial Omni results for “Polling for Cocktails” are in and are going against the national trend. Forty-two percent (42%) of “voters” are raising glasses for the Republican party, while 38% have sipped for the Democratic party and 20% for the Independent camp. Since Omni opened its polls back in September, this gap has significantly narrowed when compared to week one results of 50% Republican, 34% Democratic and 16% Independent. All signs seem to point to a possible turn of the tide. 

Diving deeper into the polls, the Trump-tini (Tito’s Handmade Vodka, lemon and cranberry juices, Domaine Chandon and a sugared rim), and the True Blue Mule (Tito’s Handmade Vodka, ginger beer and Blueberry Reàl Infused Syrup) are both averaging around 900 “votes,” polling almost neck-and-neck. 

Time still remains for Americans to make an impact and #DrinkTheVote. To cast a ballot, head to any participating Omni property. A complete list and more details on “Polling for Cocktails” are available at www.omnihotels.com/drinkthevote.  

*On Tuesday, Sept. 6, Omni Hotels & Resorts launched its brand-wide “Polling for Cocktails” promotion, which runs through Election Day, in an effort to engage hotel guests and visitors in the conversation. Guests may “cast a ballot” in the promotion by ordering one of the seven original, handcrafted cocktails from the unique "Polling for Cocktails” menu. Each week, drink orders are tallied and the overall consumption rates are tracked and posted online the following Wednesday. This poll is an informal forecast meant for entertainment purposes only.
