Hillary Clinton, Christie surge ahead in 2016 merchandise contest

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) comes in a very distant second place, with about 6,200 products, trailed by Vice President Biden with 3,221 doo-dads. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo takes the fourth place spot among Democrats with 2,744 items and Sen. Mark Warner (Va.) gets just a sliver of love from CafePress users with less than 300 goodies (241 to be precise) for sale.

On the GOP side, Christie — who, like Clinton has not said whether he’ll run in three years — crushes the competition, with about 20,000 different knick-knacks up for grabs. Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), who was the center of veepstakes buzz last year, trails the Garden State politician by more than 10,000 products, with some 7,600 bearing his name or image. 

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Dr. Ben Carson are virtually tied for third place in the tally, with about 6,000 pieces of merchandise each. 

Rounding out the rest of the maybe-Republican 2016 candidates: former vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Sen. John Thune (S.D.) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) makes a slight dent in the CafePress race with 1,110 products.
