Obama wins by a landslide in kids’ online election
NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a landslide for President Barack Obama – at least among people too young to vote.
Nickelodeon’s Linda Ellerbee said Monday that the president captured 65 percent of the vote to beat Republican Mitt Romney in the network’s “Kids Pick the President” vote. More than 520,000 people cast online ballots through the children’s network’s website over one week earlier this month.
Since it began in 1988, the kids have presaged the adults’ vote all but once, when more youngsters voted for John Kerry over George W. Bush in 2004.
Obama answered questions submitted by Nickelodeon viewers for a special earlier this month. Romney didn’t participate.
