Last night I offered this post about the Weekly Reader Presidential Election Poll, and its amazing string of correctly predicting the next president in 12 out of 13 elections.
Now, in the wake of Barrack Obama's election as President of the United States, it's 13 out of 14 elections.
And the poll numbers may have fallen within that margin-or-error that pollsters and other statisticians like to throw around in their analyses. In the 14th Weekly Reader election survey, with more than 125,000 votes cast from kindergarten through 12th grade, the result was Obama 54.7% and John McCain 42.9% (with 'other' candidates receiving 2.5% of the student vote). At5 this time, it's being reported that, with 96% of the results in, Obama has 52+%, McCain has 46+%, and Other has -2%.
