Student Vote Chooses Bush
This just in over at Schoolastic News predicts a Bush victory on November 2nd.
"George W. Bush won the kid's election poll with 52 percent of the vote," announced Scholastic Student Reporter David Rush. Senator John Kerry received 47 percent. One percent of the votes were for "other," with quite a few kids writing in Mom" as their choice for President.
Scholastic News has conducted student election polls since 1940. Poll results, which are not scientific, have reflected actual results in all but two elections: 1948 and 1960. In 1948, kids chose Thomas E. Dewey over winner Harry S. Truman. In 1960, America's classrooms chose Richard M. Nixon over winner John F. Kennedy. Both were close elections. In 2000, student voters chose George W. Bush, mirroring the Electoral College result but not the result of the popular vote.
Sounds good to me. The funny thing is, the two years they missed, they voted Republican. Maybe our schools aren't as left leaning as we thought.
