The poll was open to kids from grades 1 to 12 in Scholastic News and Junior Scholastic magazines.
Sorry, but this poll doesn't show anything.....how can a 7 year old actually know what's at stake and make a logical decision as to who's the best candidate to lead our country? :confused: I'd almost bet that 9 times out of 10 their teacher would sway them one way or another :)

I knew there was a reason that you have to be 18 to vote....:p

PRINCETON, NJ -- Barack Obama maintains a lead over John McCain in the latest Gallup Poll Daily tracking update from Saturday through Monday; the size of the lead varies between seven and 10 percentage points among likely voters, depending on turnout assumptions.

It's not looking too good right now for the McPalin Campaign judging by all the tracking polls out as of yesterday !!

Maybe if they get the campaign out of the gutter and stop all the hate-mongering then it may help. :D

Grandmother sues McCain for hate speech

A Kansas City grandmother is suing John McCain and Sarah Palin for promoting hate speech. Mary Kay Green told KSHB that some statements at McCain campaign rallies terrify her as much as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

"I know the secret service is on this case, but John McCain and Sarah Palin can stop some of this by a statement that they abhor these death threats and will not tolerate them," said Green.

The 66-year-old civil attorney, a lifelong Democrat, claims in the suit that the McCain campaign has intentionally and recklessly portrayed Barack Obama as a terrorist.

Green said, "You have to take these things seriously."

Green believe that Palin has been working crowds into a frenzy. There have been reports from McCain campaign rallies with words like "kill him," "off with his head," and "Muslim terrorist."

According to Green, her father managed the Nebraska campaigns of John and Robert Kennedy. After both were felled by assassins, her father died "of grief."

"I think John McCain and Sarah Palin have no understanding of what we went through as a nation," she said. "[The lawsuit] will be dismissed as soon as I hear public statements from these two candidates that they abhor these death threats and that they will not tolerate these intruders in their audiences."

All John McCain will say is that these are true patriots at his and Palins rallies...that's one of the very reasons that Colin Powell endorsed Obama and some other true conservative republicans are doing the same !!

Not cool, Gamtrak - especially after the moderator's warning earlier. You don't even know the poster you are insulting here for expressing an opposing view.

You know, People,

This Gamtrak seems bound and determined to make as many enemies as possible here at Casinomeister, not to mention she gets a kick out of "dissing" members in good standing here. She seems to enjoy being rude and disrespectful to all that simply do not share her views.

Here's a suggestion to any and all that really think she is "out of line". Use the ignore button that is available to all of us here. If no one reads her nastiness or responds to her taunts and belligerence, she will find herself with no audience. Perhaps she will crawl back into the hole she crawled out of, you think?

Thank goodness, the world has more nice folks than people like her.

<sigh>

Although provoked, this sort of response is not helping the situation, I'm afraid.

And using the ignore button or "keeping out of the political kitchen" deprives readers of all the views on an interesting topic.

Surely the optimum solution is personal discipline here so that we can all benefit from following a key election in the USA?
