In Kids’ Online Vote It’s Obama By A Landslide

NEW YORK (October 22, 2012)—President Barack Obama captured 65 percent of the vote to beat Republican Mitt Romney in the Nickelodeon network's "Kids Pick the President" vote, Nickelodeon's Linda Ellerbee said Monday.

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 presaged the adults' vote all but once, when more youngsters voted for John Kerry over George W. Bush in 2004.

Mr. Obama answered questions submitted by Nickelodeon viewers for a special earlier this month, but Romney didn't participate.
