And a Child Shall Lead Them...

...Or at least parrot their parents' views. Forget Zogby! Here's some good news from Nickelodeon's children's poll.
A strong majority of American children support Democratic White House hopeful John Kerry over President George W. Bush in the election less than two weeks away, according to an online poll released Wednesday by Nickelodeon cable channel.

Children have always picked the winner since the popular channel aimed at kids began conducted the poll in 1988. In 2000, they backed Bush with 55 percent.

Some 400,000 children responded to the poll, and 57 percent backed Kerry against 43 percent for Bush.

"The 'Kids' Vote' seems to work as a good barometer of the actual presidential vote because, developmentally, kids between the ages of 2 and 11 share the same opinions and outlooks as their parents," said Cyma Zarghami, president of the television channel, part of Viacom International.

Woohoo! How long until the first wingnut rejection of this poll because Viacom owns CBS, that so-called Librul Haven? Yeah, it sure was great for us libruls when CBS refused to play that Move.On ad during the Superbowl cos they're so, um, librul.

Dissents and Laments

That's weird. Today on CNN, the nickelodeon poll favored Bush over Kerry by over 40%. There was a chill in the air after they said it has been accurate for over a decade. Hopefully for once it will be wrong.

CBS is about as liberal Rupert Murdoch's big toe.

Walter Cronkite is a Republican, but since he came up in the Golden Era of TV journalism, you'd never know that.

The truest indicator of the coming election is that there ARE no indicators because no one can accurately measure the perceptions of the newly registered voters. Although most people who bother to register for the first time, or the first time in a long time, aren't doing so because they want more of the same. They want change.

At least, I hope that's the case!
