“During the first six months of 2008, 86 percent of Obama-related sales at CafePress [an online merchandise store] were pro-Obama — just 14 percent were anti-Obama,” writes The Daily Caller’s Caroline May.
“Over the first six months of 2012, 45 percent of Obama merchandise sales have been pro-Obama, 55 percent have been anti-Obama,” she adds.

Over the same 2012 time frame, 95 percent of Romney gear purchases have been pro-Romney — just 5 percent have been anti-Romney.
