Check this out:

www.weeklyreader.com/election_vote.asp

"...Since 1956, Weekly Reader students in grades 1-12 have correctly picked the president, making the Weekly Reader poll one of the most accurate predictors of presidential outcomes in history. ..."

Guess who they predict as winner in this election?

Wait a minute. The kids in the Nikelodeon poll said Kerry would win. I just don't know what to believe anymore.

Quick joke, not to hijack.

Why does Michael Jackson love twenty-eight year olds?

It seems viable. Most kids would vote like their parents are going to.

Look at the breakdown by grade. People reach maximum stupidity at 16.

How true is that!


here's a better one.

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


"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.

I like this part: " ...quite a few kids writing in "Mom" as their choice for President. ..."



Kinda cool.
