DALLAS — By now you’ve probably seen Gregg Wilson on TV or a stadium jumbotron! Yeah with his trademark giant wreckin’ ball helmets, he’s become a staple of the DFW sports scene.

But now Gregg is taking his style from the sports arena to the political arena.

“We’re basically creating a custom helmet, one for Donald Trump and one for Hillary Clinton.” said Wilson, “My philosophy here is let’s take that same passion we have for sports and bring it to politics in a fun way.”

And he’s not just stopping with selling the wrecking’ ball helmets!

“For every ball that is ordered for each candidate, I’ll keep track of how many are ordered and that’s going to basically result in the winning candidate come election.” Wilson explained.

That’s right, forget all those big time opinion polls, big hats is where it’s at!

Hey, there’s reason to believe in the predictive power of this headgear.

In a similar stunt, 7-11 has sold politically branded coffee cups in recent elections, and the nation’s java purchases have correctly predicted the last 4 presidential contests.

But Gregg does warn that the political science of this helmet poll does have one catch:

“The margin of error for this poll is plus or minus two balls.”

Yeahhh…. We’ll let you guys figure that one out for yourselves!
