The results are Obama 51% and Romney 46%.
Barack Hussein Obama! Ummmm, ummmm, ummmm.
I believe algore won in his year.
Yes, because according to this, Obama will carry Florida, North and South Carolina and Arizona, and Romney will carry Texas by 2%. Need we really say more?
So ya’ think Florida and NC are in Obama’s corner this year? According to this “accurate” kiddie poll they are going for zerO.
Watch, Obama will push to lower the age of enfranchisement to 8 years.
I imagine the teachers are much more outspoken politically nowadays than historically.
If you are under 30 and are a conservative, you have no heart.
If you are over 30 and are a liberal, you have no brains.

I’ve bookmarked it and will compare on election night. I trust the Colorado study more than the Scholastic vote.
Well...the brainwashers at the schools aren’t doing too well....I would have thought Obomba would win by a LOT MORE!
Exactly. Obama is just a pop culture president so more young kids know of him. that’s about it. And he’s the current sitting pres they see all of the time on TV. It’s about familiarity and nothing more.
And, of course... all this without one smidgen of pro-left prodding by teachers.
I never heard any politics in grammar school.
Only one teacher in HS.
My hometown democrats were closet democrats most part.
My children get Scholastic Magazine at school. They just came home from school and I told them the Scholastic vote was in. They looked at me like I was an alien. I guess Catholic schools did not get that issue.
” Unfortunately this has been an accurate way of predicting the president historically. “
That was before Obama tried to destroy our country.
Older population and poor families tend to be larger.
And there is the illegal alien issue...
My kids at a private Christian school did not vote either.
Scholastic Election 2000 Campaign Presidential Poll; Results by State.
Governor Bush received 357,847 votes, or 54 percent of the total.
The Democratic contender, Vice President Al Gore, received 276,898 votes, or 41 percent.
Only 26,736 students, comprising 4 percent of the total, voted for other candidates.
I’m sorry, but how many who voted were illegals and anchor babies?
If you look at the border state statistics, it looks like they comprise quite a bit of the people voting.
