I actually was watching tv the other night and saw the results on Nickelodeon. It thought it was fascinating.

Nickelodeon’s Linda Ellerbee said Monday that the president captured 65 percent of the vote to beat Republican Mitt Romney in the network’s “Kids Pick the President” vote. More than 520,000 people cast online ballots through the children’s network’s website over one week earlier this month.

Yeaahhhhhh Right 520,000 people that cast votes were kids, Linda Ellerbee is a Obama supporter, Mitt romney was invited to give a small speech for Nickelodeon but never turned up because how hard linda supports obama.

Strange how politics work, eh? You don't show up for stuff and folks don't vote for you. You screw up a debate and folks vote for the other person.

Regardless of the outcome just remember your actions or non-actions play a huge part in the outcome of many events.

Very interesting...I am wondering if the children are mirroring the choice for President that their parents have made.

Probably so or just the fact maybe that the president has children in their age group that they can share some affinity with and maybe that is affecting their choice for president. There are many things that would go into their making a decision, so good observation.

Why wasnt Ronald McDonald on the ballot? Or Grimace?

Spongebob or if the candidate has to be a "real" person put Obama against one of the guys in Big Time Rush.

He wouldnt stand a chance.

I distinctly remember back in 1976 wanting Jimmy Carter to win and if I were old enough to vote I would have voted for him. I was 7 at the time. I talked to my parents about it, they didn't want him to win. I'm not certain this a direct reflection of their parents beliefs. Children don't always just pick whomever their parents do, I guess is the point I'm trying to make.

As an adult, I would probably not vote for Carter. Weird how some things change as you grow older. As far as a good indication on whether this is a forebearing of the official election, I believe it probably gives a pretty good indication of who is going to win. I know this contradicts what I wrote above, only because I'm one person and was only one child. I guess we'll see. All depends on who actually goes to the polls and casts a vote.

ETA: My reason for wanting Carter to win was he seemed like a nice man and a gentle soul. It really had nothing to do with politics or policy.

Obama is definitely "cooler", most kids are likely to prefer him.

I think it's more of a case of exposure. The kids would see more of Obama as he's the sitting Prez.

Romney was right we need to yank funding from Nickelodeon.

Wait it wasn't Nickelodeon, it was PBS.
