Teens for Bush
    #3260441 - 10/21/04 02:36 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I've pointed out in this forum before how those in the 18-30 age bracket are overwhelmingly in favor of Bush. As a matter of fact, it's the age bracket in which his edge over Kerry is highest. Not even the over-60 crowd beats it. Many pundits believe the explanation for this is that younger people today are as a whole more cynical than the older crowd with a more keenly developed bullshit detection system. Kerry obviously would suffer if this is the case. The younger crowd are also more likely to be internet afficianados, and therefore less influenced by the rabidly partisan legacy media organs. Again, Kerry suffers when the influence of his shills in the Mainstream Press is reduced.

Here's something you won't see in the Mainstream Media -- http://www.channelone.com/election_2004/results/

Every morning in thousands of schools across the country, teenagers watch the news on Channel One. In election years, Channel One holds mock elections, and for the two previous presidential elections their results predicted the national outcome.

The mock election was held this week?and the results are in. President Bush won by a large margin, with 393 electoral votes to Kerry?s 145. Over 1.4 million teenagers voted, nationwide.

It's interesting to see how many opted for third party candidates -- Georgia is the lowest at 3.2%. Most states have at least double that amount, and Alaska and Hawaii are over 10%. If only those figures are repeated in the real election!

Student polls are often very close to the actual outcome.

I guess a lot of kids vote like ther parents.

first of all..if thats so..its definitely not because of a "keenly developed bullshit detection system"...george is the king of bullshit..and even what us libbys like to call the "corporate media" couldnt completely ignore it...my hunch is that for whatever reasons..they have bought into the neocon ideology lox..stock..&bagel...they simply dont care if bush is lying or not.. their voting for him anyway...

second of all..another teen poll produced the opposite result ..

http://www.usatoday.com/news/politicsele...htm?POE=NEWISVA

unfortunately..bush will still win...but channel one sounds alot like kiddie faux news...EDIT ..or maybe they agree with the ayatollah...

Sometimes I watch Nickelodeon with my little sister. Rarely will you see a more liberal slant than on that station.

They have a kids news show and several other shows like it.

Yeah, but nickelodeon viewers generally are not old enough to vote.

how was this election held anyway?

Annapurna, why have you given up so easily? polls? voting systems? polls are all over the place, with many including Pew reporting a deadlock. And polls aren't as good at predicting electoral votes. Is predicting an undesirable "inevitability" your defense mechanism? Remember what our president said- the best defense is a good offense. Voting and speaking out is our offense (and it's not a criminal offense yet, so exercise it before it is!)

Did these non-pussy voters send absentee ballots to channelone from Iraq?

Since when is being a liberal being a pussy? Why not step back off your swollen dick and look at what's happening in the world, then tell me that disagreeing with the government is being a pussy.
BUT, there is some truth to what you said- Most Democratic POLITICIANS are too pussyish for my taste. Then again the taste of the worst pussy isn't nearly as bad as the taste of blood.
I'm leaving this all-kinds-of open for TEAM AMERICA references.

Meh. Kids who read vote Bush http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/041020/nyw076_1.html , kids who watch cartoon shows vote Kerry. I don't have a TV so I may be wrong about this, but isn't Nickelodeon a cable cartoon network?

None of the three kid's polls mean much, since only a few of the ones surveyed are old enough to vote anyway. Of the three, the one I linked is the only one restricted to teenagers, but I doubt a thirteen year old is much more politically savvy than a twelve year old. It was just an interesting tidbit I came across. I'd say the preferences of American teens should be given weight over the preferences of people from other countries (who apparently overwhelmingly prefer Kerry), but since only a few of them will be casting votes in the actual election, it's a moot point.
