As we await the final results of tonight’s expansive Presidential Primary, we thought it would be good to remind you (and perhaps show you how much they are in tune with the general pulse of the nation) who kids picked as the nominees for each major party.
Linda Ellerbee (an Advisory Board member for The LAMP) has put together a fantastic website over at Nickelodeon. In voting that concluded on January 18th, over 80,000 kids have chosen Barack Obama (D) and John McCain (R) as their respective party’s presidential nominee.
We here at The LAMP are excited to see just how much this reflects how the registered voters end up deciding. Make sure you keep checking in with Nick’s ‘Kids’ Pick the President’ as they will continue to run features that involve and excite our youth in this crucial part of our political process.
