Obama wins, according to kids’ vote
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
It might seem that it doesn’t matter that presidential hopeful Barack Obama
won the 2008 Scholastic Kids Presidential Election Poll. But the poll hasn’t
been wrong in more than 40 years.
Since the poll began in 1940, the results have accurately predicted the win
ner of the general election all but two times. In 1948, kids voted for Thomas E.
Dewey over Harry S Truman, and in 1960, more voted for Richard M. Nixon than
for John F. Kennedy.
Almost 250,000 kids from across the country in grades one through 12 voted by
paper ballot or online. The poll closed Oct. 10. Obama won with 57 percent of the
vote; McCain received 39 percent.
NOTED. After being fined $l5O for playing
rap music too loudly on his car stereo in July,
Andrew Vactor of Urbana, Ohio, was offered
A judge offered to reduce the fine to $35
if Vactor spent 20 hours listening to classical
music by Bach, Beethoven and Chopin.
A probation officer said Vactor, 24, lasted
only about 15 minutes.
