More on Youth for Bush

The 2004 Weekly Reader Poll is out.

The students who read Weekly Reader’s magazines have made their preference for President known: they want to send President Bush back to the White House. The results of this year’s Weekly Reader poll have just been announced, and the winner is President Bush. Hundreds of thousands of students participated, giving the Republican President more than 60% of the votes cast and making him a decisive choice over Democratic Senator John Kerry.
This bit was the most surprising to me:
Since 1956, Weekly Reader students in grades 1-12 have correctly picked the president, making the Weekly Reader poll one of the most accurate predictors of presidential outcomes in history.
Hopefully the streak will continue!

Odd. I conducted an impromptu poll at our house and found the opposite. 2 children for Kerry and 1 for Bush. :) Thier reasoning, when asked, was some what interesting. The 2 for Kerry felt that it was his turn to be President. One of them even stating that President Bush had been President for too long. The third child felt the President Bush should remain the President, because, well, he's the President. All in all, it was an interesting exercise to conduct during homework time.
