Kids pick Obama

Nickelodeon’s “Kids Pick the President” event has predicted the winner in four of the last five presidential elections (and yes, Nickelodeon has been around that long).  And this year, with over two million votes cast, Obama won, 51-49.   Kids also picked Obama, 57-39, in the vote sponsored by Scholastic News–and the results of that one have only been different from the real election twice since the 1940s.

    That’s great. I’ve noticed that little kids really like to say Barack Obama — maybe we should send them out canvassing (hoping that even the worst bigots won’t punch them in the face).
