There has been no shortage of stories about the recent downturn in enthusiasm for the president. And Daily Intel is blogging about another way in which support for the president has dwindled: merch sales. The Washington Post says "Souvenir vendors in Washington say once-thriving sales of the garish merchandise fawning over the president are nowhere near what they were. Sales peaked at the height of Obamamania, between the election and the inauguration, but vendors said that Obama paraphernalia still moved from their shelves through much of 2009." And it appears that not only are items supporting Obama not as popular, shirts expressing anti-Obama sentiments are picking up in sales.
What'll happen to all of those Barack-o-Tacos!?!
