"....and a little child shall lead them."

Or in this case, a quarter of a million little (and not-so-little) children (from 1st to 12th grades) shall lead them!

What's so special about this poll??? According to Scholastic:
Since 1940, the results of the student vote have mirrored the outcome of the general election all but twice: In 1948, kids voted for Thomas E. Dewey over Harry S. Truman. In 1960, more students voted for Richard M. Nixon than for John F. Kennedy. In 2000, a majority of student voters chose George W. Bush, mirroring the Electoral College result, but not the result of the popular vote.
