Will You Shop More This Holiday Season If Obama Wins?

Is a win for Barack Obama tonight the therapy retail needs this holiday season? A survey conducted by International Council of Shopping Centers and Goldman Sachs of 1,000 Americans reveals 8 percent would probably increase their holiday spending if Barack Obama won, but only 5 percent said they'd increase holiday shopping if John McCain won. Respondents said the election was a greater influence over holiday shopping budgets than the tanking stock market or how secure they felt about their jobs. So no matter what, spending will increase. Do your worst, stock market! (Except, you know, not really.) [Heard on the Runway/WSJ]
