     My own school is having a mock election. It will end up being >90% Obama. Hopefully I'll get to vote for Barr (or write-in Baldwin).

An Obama supporter or even a democrat is a black sheep in my school.

Just curious Gporter, do people at your school consider Obama to be unpatriotic and stress his middle name when asking potential supporters of the Junior Senator from Illinois whether they are supporting him or not?

I don't know if Wake Forest is doing one, as I haven't checked my emails in a while, but if we did, it would be pretty close. I'd hate to go to a school that was 70-90% Obama.

Pretty sure Obama would win handily, though I know a kind of McCain supporter in my ToK class who's following the election very closely.

We didn't hold a mock election in 2008 or 2007 for the federal and provincial elections, sadly.

     After recent developments, my school's mock election will probably be fairly close. Smiley

Outside of the black neighborhoods, McCain might do better than he does in the city, just due to kids wanting to rebel. Then again how many whites with kids live in Minneapolis?

my old middle school, now an elementary, which my niece goes to, was surprisingly close.

Popular Votes

Obama/Biden—424

McCain/Palin—398

Other—15 (Ralph Nader-7, Cynthia McKinney-4, Brian Moore-1, Bob Barr-2, Gloria La Riva-1)


the only demographic McCain won was 2nd graders.

at my kids' middle school, they had 3 choices, Obama, McCain or Other.  The totals were:

Obama 90%
McCain 5%
Other 5%

pretty devastating.  My daughter has a friend whose parents are Israeli. She's for McCain. Said she only knew one other kid at school for McCain.

most of us do not like him very much. if that answers your question.

Not particularly. I mean, it was a very straight forward question. Also, why did it take a month for you to reply?

We do not hold a mock election.

But, if we did, it would be about 60% of the vote for McCain. An Obama supporter or even a democrat is a black sheep in my school.
That would make 40% of your school black sheep

I'm not sure, but basically no white kids go to Minneapolis public schools so figure from there.
