Kerry Tops Bush in Nick Election10/20/2004 8:40 AM Eastern
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) received 57% of the vote in Nickelodeon’s "Kids' Vote," topping President George W. Bush’s 43%, the network said Wednesday.
Nick added that it has held a Kids' Vote every election year since 1988, and kids have correctly predicted the winner of the general elections for the past four U.S. presidential campaigns.
Nearly 400,000, kids participated, voting online (www.nick.com) Tuesday.
"The Kids' Vote seems to work as a good barometer of the actual presidential vote because developmentally, kids between the ages of 2-11 share the same opinions and outlooks as their parents," Nickelodeon Television president Cyma Zarghami said in a prepared statement.
