The kids have spoken! According to more than 500,000 ballots submitted by underage wannabe voters in Nickelodeon’s “Kids Pick The President” initiative, President Barack Obama beat out Republican Governor Mitt Romney with 65 percent of the vote.
“Who cares?” you ask. “They can’t vote for real.”
Well, since Nickelodeon started polling kids in 1988, the results have matched up with the actual outcome all but once, when John Kerry was the kids’ choice over George W. Bush in 2004. “Kids Pick The President” gives youngsters an abridged lesson in politics with television specials, an interactive website with candidate bios, campaign issues, candidate answers to kid-submitted questions, and message boards where they can talk about what’s important to them.
And what about the actual polls? Since the first debate, Romney has held a slight lead in the national polls and as of Thursday, was still hanging on. Obama, on the other hand, was still ahead in key state polls like Ohio and New Hampshire.
