Do you remember when you were a kid and did the Weekly Reader presidential vote? Apparently since 1956 they have accurately predicted the winner of the presidential election. I remember doing this in 1984. Well, when I voted I had no idea who Walter Mondale was. I only knew who Reagan was and that my parents were not voting for him, which as a kid, you generally model you parents. So, I voted against Reagan. And we all know who won. Both my class and all of the Weekly Readers had predicted that Reagan would win.
This year, Weekly Reader is predicting that Bush will win. Now, is there any other type of publication that has that type of accuracy record?
Maybe I should start my own poll. Who thinks that Weekly Reader will accurately predict this years election?
Also - do you think that 4 years ago Weekly Reader accurately predicted that Bush would become president because he received the majority of the electoral votes (271 vs. 266) and Gore recieved the majority of the general votes(48.38% vs. 47.87%)?
One other thing - did you know that write-in votes for president are not permitted. It says so on the bottom of this website: http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/2000presgeresults.htm
