You may be asking the wrong question. Perhaps you should ask "what happens if you don't go?" The other thing you may consider is your timing. If you are expecting dramatic results with huge sales, you may be looking at things unrealistically for the moment. After the election would probably give you better results more so than going before the election. Either way, the election will have an effect on how things shake out.
