Recently, Channel One held a mock election with 1.4 million teenagers as the electorate. They have Bush winning with 393 electoral votes to Kerry's 145. Bush won everything but CA, NY, NJ, MD, MA, ME, HA, CT, and RI. I really wouldn't have predicted that.
I don't know much about Channel One other than it's an educational channel targeted at youth. Still, the results are pretty weird. The parent company, Primedia, Inc. puts out such esteemed publications as Motor Trend and Surfer. It's the second largest media firm in terms of advertising pages and impressions made though. I don't have any idea whether or not to chalk this up to bias, unscientific poll practice, or something else.Posted by ryan at October 23, 2004 3:11 PM
