Smart children vote for Bush

Yesterday's Best of the Web on Opinionjournal had a couple items worth reading. But most interesting to me was the comparison of the mock elections held by Scholastic books and Nickelodeon. In Nickelodeon's "Kid's Vote" Kerry won 57% to 43%. But in Scholastic's mock vote Bush won with 52%. So kids who watch TV want Kerry , most likely b/c their parents want Kerry, while kids from households where reading is a priority, reflecting their parents' leanings, vote for Bush.

This press release from Scholastic points out that its mock elections have predicted the winner in every race since 1940 except for Dewey/Truman and Nixon/Kennedy.
