Why read polls or boring charts when you can take the pulse of a nation by going on Pinterest and looking at pictures of nail art? Our highly scientific political survey took place on the photo-pinning site. We tried a variety of search term combos, but turned up five Obama manicures (including one from Eve but none from Beyonce) and just one Romney manicure. Conclusion: either Pinterest tags are busted, or no one cares about political nail art.

The upside: red, white, and blue nails are a cute look no matter which candidate you're rooting for.
