Republicans. JCPenney Shoppers are divided evenly as well (37.4% Democrat

Of the Walmart and Kohl’s Shoppers who are still undecided, over 29% of

each say they will make a decision the day of the Election. Over a quarter

of JCPenney (25.3%) and 21.5% of Target Shoppers will also decide at the

wire. However, it appears that Macy’s Shoppers will have already made up

their minds at that point; only 15.3% plan to decide at the last minute.

“Looking at such detail as how specific retailer shoppers are planning to

vote in November provides valuable insights into the mood of

shoppers/voters,” said Gary Drenik, President of BIGresearch. “By

understanding the political preferences of these voter groups, it’s

indicative of socio-economic impact on political preferences and

indecisions. Perhaps McCain should consider a bus tour through Walmart

parking lots and Obama could use Target.”
