According to a new web site,, one in ten people in the U.S. is an alien (I'm assuming they mean LEGAL aliens). That's about 29.1 million people! The folks at Cuban Council, a small American digital design firm, want to know how these people would vote in the upcoming presidential election if they were allowed. So far, only 143 have submitted their vote.

Implications - Consumers are bombarded daily with a variety of products and designs, so companies must find a way to stand out in a competitive marketplace. Using humor and a sense of shock (as found in these virtual alien election polls) are great ways to relate to customers and build a relationship that will ensure further purchases in the future.
