President Obama wins in a landslide with kids across USA
President Obama wins in a landslide with kids across the country.
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.
Since it began in 1988, the kids have forecast the adults' vote all but once, when more youngsters voted for John Kerry over George W. Bush in 2004. That year hinged on the close votes in one state: Ohio.
Obama answered questions submitted by Nickelodeon viewers for a special earlier this month. Romney didn't participate.
