Just off the news wire, Weekly Reader has announced that in their fourteenth annual election survey, the result was Obama 54.7% and John McCain 42.9% (with other candidates receiving 2.5% of the student vote).
With more than 125,000 votes cast from kindergarten through 12th grade, the results were very similar to those recently announced by the Scholastic News Election Poll.
Weekly Reader says their poll did not accurately predict the national vote only once in the past 52 years. In 1992, the kids chose George H.W. Bush over Bill Clinton.
