[Who Will Win on Nov. 4?] The 2.2 million kids who voted in Nickelodeon's "Kids' Vote" in its 2008 Kids Pick the President know how to pick 'em. Since 1988, Nickelodeon's "Kids' Vote" has correctly predicted the winner in four out of the last five U.S. presidential races.
Fifty-one percent (1,167,087) chose Sen. Barack Obama and 49 percent (1,129,945) voted for John McCain.
It remains to be seen if young voters over 18 will be as motivated as their younger siblings to vote if they have to traipse down to polls and study the election pamphlet and not just click their mouse online and vote the way Mom and Dad do.
But if you want even more assurance as to the rightness of the kids' vote, it is comforting to note that even astrologers favor Mr. Obama.
Yet, it's odd: all predictions point to a tight race. How is that even possible? Why aren't Democrats running away with this thing? (Jerre Wroble)
