Obama Has a Nine-Point Lead Among Florida's Children

Categories: Politicks

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! 

Regardless, Scholastic has decided to poll these ignored Americans. And, as it turns out, President Obama is mopping the floor with Romney. Nationally Obama has a 51-45 lead among the underaged. 

Here in Florida that lead is even larger, with Obama taking a 53-44 lead. Four percent would chose someone else (sources tell us Justin Bieber was a popular write-in candidate despite not being born in America). 

"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."

Scholastic has been holding the mock vote for decades, and only two times did their results differ from the actual results. The last time that was happened was in 1960 when kids picked Richard Nixon over JFK (which, what the hell, we just always assumed the sight of Richard Nixon sent kids to hide directly under the beds).

The under aged don't vote and don't know anything outside of what their Teacher's union members tell them.

The fact is that President Obama and the Democrats are doing what they have always done when they're desperate,,,going after the moron vote.And citing little kids as a poll source is just the thing that could sway a moron who lives in a bubble.

to the gop you not going to beat Barack Obama with some guy who has Swiss bank accounts, Cayman Island accounts, owns shares of Goldman Sachs while it forecloses on Florida and is himself a stockholder in Freddie Mae and Freddie Mac while he tries to think the rest of us are too stupid to put the dots together to understand what this is all about.”

“If you’re not sure about whether to support Mitt Romney, whether you’re liberal, or whether you’re very conservative, you ought to be excited, because he’s been on your side at one time or another. So I’m not completely misunderstood. I’m not as excited as I am desperate. Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.Mitt Romney’s losing at this point in a big way. If something’s going to come out, get it out in a hurry. I do not know why He changed his position on virtually everything. I’m a moderate Republican, that’s what I am, so I’d be inclined to support someone like Mitt Romney. “I believe most Americans want their next President to remind them of the guy they work with, not the guy who laid them off.”

So children who have no concept of responsibility and have had everything handed to them their entire lives favor Obama?
