Largo business conducts presidential cookie poll: The treats have Hillary by 180 cookies



   Frida Alipour's presidential cookie poll has successfully predicted the outcome of the election ever since Alipour started it at Frida's, her bakery in Largo, back in  2004. She conducts the poll by keeping track of the number of cookies sold with either Trump or Clinton decorated on top, When we checked in about two weeks ago, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were neck and neck.

    At 2 p.m. Nov. 7,  Alipour shared up-to-date results. "The cookie graph has been up and down with daily scandals being revealed about each candidate throughout this election,'' Alipour said. "As of this morning, Hillary is currently in the lead by about four percent.''

   Going into election day, customers have bought 1,824 Clinton cookies and 1,644 Trump cookies.
