    Oct 18, 2016 3:19 PM GMT four years since 1940, America’s schoolchildren have gone to the polls, casting ballots in a mock presidential election that has uncannily predicted the outcome of nearly every race — including all 13 contests since 1964.

    This year about 153,000 students cast ballots. Their candidate?

    Hillary Clinton, in a landslide

    ,,,The Democratic former first lady and U.S. senator garnered 52% to Republican real estate developer Donald Trump’s 35%. In all, Clinton, who is surging in the grown-up polls, carried enough states to win an eye-popping 436 electoral votes to Trump's 99.

    Clinton needs just 270 electoral votes to win, and the poll-tracking website on Monday put her total as high as 345 electoral votes.
    Among schoolchildren, Clinton carried nearly every battleground state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Ohio. She also carried Alaska, Idaho, Texas and Utah, all traditionally red states.

    ...Children, he said, “tend to see what’s going on, on TV or on the Internet, and make conclusions for themselves.”

    Regrettably, some of these kids have already been exposed to Trump's pussy-grabbing obscenities. What a role model they have.

    They couldn't have a better role model, being all of us on election day who will tell Trump and his supporters to go fuck themselves.

    Interesting about the survey/mock election is that it has been predictive of election wins 13 times consecutively since 1964.

    Also interesting is how kids in red states--so voting against their parents--picked the Democrat over the GOP's candidate.

    Not only will the Republicans be losing to demographic changes in the racial makeup of America, so from side to side will their numbers be squeezed....


    ...but also the GOP will lose from the bottom up, as youth sees through & rejects Republican bullshit.

    If you think Trump's comments are going to shock millenials... think again. Movies, song lyrics, and the Internet push the shock limits for them more and more.
