Kerry Tops Bush in Nick Election


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 ( 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.
