LaMar’s doughnut vote: The votes are in for the LaMar’s Donut poll, which was conducted nationwide as well as in Wichita’s stores. Doughnut eaters voted for the past four weeks by purchasing either a donkey-shaped “Fillary Clinton” doughnut or an elephant-shaped “Donut J. Trump” doughnut. Though Donald Trump was leading at last count with Kansas diners, Hillary Clinton won the doughnut election nationwide by 7 percentage points, according to a news release from the company.
