Obama Has a Nine-Point Lead Among Florida's Children
We all know Obama hates the 1 percent, and Romney could care less about the 47 percent, but the cold hard truth is that neither campaign has done anything to gain support from the 24.6 percent. Yes, we're talking about the 24.6 percent under the legal age to vote. America's children! How arrogant of these candidates to ignore these American citizens just because they can't cast a ballot and are more concerned about losing their Beyblades and Bratz dolls than their jobs!
"The Scholastic Student Vote invited young people under the legal voting age of 18 to cast their vote for President in a mock election,"Scholastic says
. "They could vote online at www.scholastic.com/vote or by mailing in paper ballots found in Scholastic classroom magazines. Almost a quarter million (250,000) students voted from August 15 until the online poll closed on October 10."
