23 voted. Two options only. This is a HUGE R county. Romney - 3. Obama - 20.

LOL...what do you read into that, Kathy? Maybe they've heard more about Obama than Romney? Being 2nd graders they probably don't pay much attention to the campaign.

If you are up in PA where I think you are, you are in 70% R territory, so the results tell me that parents aren't spending time telling their children about the election. That's a shame really, my wife and I always educated our kids on politics and shaped their views from a very young age.

My sons are grown up now, and they always tease me about how much I talk about politics.

Who's on the ballot in PA? I thought I read the the CP failed to get access, which is a disgrace since that is their HQ and their party chair is from PA.

We used to take our kids with us to the polls, and they would hand our literature, etc. Proud to say that all my kids have had some sort of involvement at some point in their life: school board, township gov't, etc.

I was looking at fundraising numbers and I think Goode only raised about 100K. Time for them to pack it in and call it a day. We had a CP group down here that I made contact with a few years back - nice folks, but completely misguided.

They probably thought it was a pop quiz and wanted to ace it. I wouldn't read much into what 2nd graders think about an election few of them know anything about.

Didn't Drudge have a headline within the last week how Obama was touting his popularity with preschoolers?

kids are taught to share.. and they probably thought obama "shares" or wants to be rebels against their parents.

The only thing I read into it is that even the hard core neocon warmonger right wing evangelical freaks that overrun my town don't mention Romney at home. No one likes him.

I looked up a sample ballot, which had Romney, Obama, Stein, Johnson, & write-in.

Thanks, chica. I know Johnson almost didn't get on, in fact I think he may have had to reschedule his Paulfest appearance because he was in PA dealing with it.

Last night I had an 8-year-old public indoctrination inmate tell me she didn't want Rmoney to win because he's going to start more wars.

I doubt there's a single classroom in the country where an incumbent President wouldn't win. This is name ID.

When I was in school Ross Perot won by a landslide.

Dukakis won ours (I was pretty darned young, though) partially because his name was more fun, and partially because he wanted to share... and sharing is cool, right?

I agree with Obama on this one. Kids know when someone is giving them BS. Too bad parents aren't as insightful.
