While most national polls show a tight race for the White House, Halloween mask sales indicate otherwise.

President Obama masks have been outselling Mitt Romney’s, 60 percent to 40 percent, according to Spirit Halloween, the country’s largest seasonal Halloween retailer.

David Hauser, co-owner of Anything Costumes in Phoenix, said his store is seeing similar election mask sales.

“On the Obama side we’re seeing a total of about 60 percent of the sales compared with 40 percent for Romney,” Hauser said.

Hauser said it’s the same story he saw four years ago, when President Obama beat Arizona Sen. John McCain in the presidential election.
